Frequently asked questions (FAQ) about Fully Managed VPS Hosting.

What’s the difference between hosting and dedicated server hosting?

Hosting is a service for groups or individuals who own their own domain name. We provide the technology needed for the website or webpage to be stored (hosted) on a server that is shared with other websites being hosted. VPS hosting, also referred to as a virtual private server (VPS) or virtual dedicated server, provides dedicated resources and an isolated hosting environment (meaning there are no other sites sharing your resources) with dedicated CPU, RAM and storage.

How do I choose the right VPS hosting plan for my website?

First, consider the resources you’ll need (e.g., control panel and types of support) to manage your VPS. If you’re moving over an existing site, think about the reasons you’re switching to a VPS (site is running slow, visitors are receiving 404 errors during heavy traffic times, low on storage, etc.). Also, look your existing site’s data usage to determine what resources (CPU, RAM and storage) you’ll need to get it running at top speed. Another advantage to a VPS is if you need more resources later, most hosts make it easy to upgrade. Next, look for plans that include backups and restore capabilities as well as server monitoring tools. No matter where you host your site, server issues pop up from time-to-time. So tools that alert you to issues and create backup copies.

Finally, if you’re new to VPS or don’t have the time to manage and maintain your server, consider Fully Managed VPS. This service includes a dedicated team of experts available to setup, monitor and remediate server issues and maintain and optimize your server — as well as helping you with all your questions.

Can I host several websites on a VPS?

You bet. With VPS Hosting, you create and manage multiple sites for your clients on a single VPS. Additionally, when using cPanel/WHM on your server, you can install multiple cPanel accounts and configure specific (RAM and storage) resources for each hosting account — then charge your client accordingly.

Can I upgrade my VPS?

Definitely. Our GoDaddy VPS hosting platform is scalable. It allows you to add more RAM to your existing plan – or upgrade your plan to higher CPU, RAM and storage with just a click — no more manual migrations.

How many IPs are included with VPS Hosting?

GoDaddy VPS Hosting includes up to three free dedicated IP addresses to use for custom applications, staging sites, email and other administration tasks.

  • Custom software and applications: If you’re running any custom software on your server then you might require a dedicated IP address. Some types of server software will require a dedicated IP in order to function properly.

  • Control Panel Management: Separate your sites and your control panel onto 2 different IP addresses for security and to isolate services.

  • Email deliverability: A dedicated IP protects your reputation and ensures your emails get delivered to their intended recipients. If you’re using domain-based email (i.e., myemail@mydomain.com) you may potentially run into email delivery issues.

    (Please note: If you use a shared IP address with your email — with other users on the same shared IP address — you run a greater risk of your IP getting blocklisted or blocked.)

What’s a VPS used for?

With a VPS, you get root access to install any software and change system configurations to your exact needs. In short, you can do just about anything on the server, like:

  • Host a website, specifically sites that run resource-intensive applications, sell products online or use a lot of bandwidth.
  • Create multiple hosting accounts within a single VPS for clients to easily create and manage websites.
  • Create a test environment for application development.
  • Run syncing software to create your own private storage.
  • Setup a VPN.
  • Setup an email server.
  • Run business analytics applications.

What are the VPS server management options?

We offer both self-managed VPS and fully-managed VPS hosting. All self-managed VPS includes automated daily backups and server monitoring of uptime, CPU, RAM and storage, and notifications if issues arise. They also include optional control panels (cPanel/WHM or Plesk Obsidian Webhost Edition) for easy server administration. Need help troubleshooting? We’ve got real folks waiting to take your call and a complete knowledge library with how-to articles.

Websites and apps that process credit cards are expected to be PCI compliant.

The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI-SSC) sets standards to protect credit card data. Namely, entities that transmit, process or store credit card information are expected to abide by the standards of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. To accept credit card payments through your website, you’ll need to ensure your customer payment information is safe and that you’re following the PCI requirements. And to simplify this process, third-party products like PayPal Checkout, Square Online Checkout and Stripe Checkout can be added to your website to process payments on your behalf (and keep credit card data off your hosting server). Make sure you’re aware of any additional requirements to keep your business PCI compliant.

If you prefer to process payments directly on your server, we offer PCI-certified products like WooCommerce Hosting and the GoDaddy Online Store.
