Who’s a good fit for GoDaddy Dedicated Server Hosting?Agencies, system admins and developers with experience managing a server looking for powerful server capabilities (highly available server for critical uses), and requiring deep server access, complete control and flexible server configurations. Our Dedicated Server Hosting also provides powerful server options with isolated resources to securely run mission critical applications and applications where latency in processing time matters, as well as uptime.
What are bare metal servers?GoDaddy Dedicated Server Hosting offers bare metal servers, a single-tenant physical server that is not shared between users, meaning there’s no virtualization technology built-in; the customer is the only one (i.e., “dedicated”) to that server. That allows the user deep-server access, complete control and state-of-the-art hardware/software and flexible server configurations — including SSD and HDD storage options for specific hosting needs.
What are the advantages of having dedicated server hosting?
Dedicated server hosting is used for applications that requires intensive workloads and large amounts of raw processing power, such as:
- Big data
- Machine learning
- Live media streaming
- Website and application hosting
- Communication apps
- Backups and storage
- Infrastructure virtualization
- Server clusters
- Business applications (CRM, ERP, Data analytics software)
- Online game hosting
GoDaddy offers both Self Managed Dedicated Server Hosting and Fully Managed Dedicate Server Hosting, what’s the difference?
Self-Managed Dedicated Server Hosting includes server monitoring of uptime, CPU, RAM and storage, and notifications if issues arise. It also includes 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. For expert help (English only), contact our dedicated team to get you going with paid, task-based admin services.
Fully Managed Dedicated Server Hosting (English only) is the recommended solution for those who don’t have the time or admin skills to manage dedicated server hosting.

What is PCI compliance?The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS or PCI for short) designates security standards to protect cardholders’ credit card data. That means, entities that store, process or transmit credit card information are expected to be compliant to the standards in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.
How can I accept credit cards online?Our hosting services are a great place to setup your online presence and product catalog. You can then work with a third-party provider to process payments on your behalf to keep credit cards off your server. If you would like to accept payments directly on your server, we offer PCI-certified products like our Managed WordPress Ecommerce Hosting and the GoDaddy Online Store. Whichever path you choose, make sure to be informed of additional requirements to keep your business PCI compliant.
What are the additional requirements I should know about?We recommend you work with your payment provider (e.g., PayPal Checkout, Square Online Checkout and Stripe Checkout) to understand any additional requirements for which you are responsible. If you’re using one of our PCI-certified products, we have a simplified checklist for you here.
