Having a dedicated server with GoDaddy.com

GoDaddy is a hosting provider. You can either apply for a shared hosting or a dedicated server. Shared hosting means your hosting account is shared inside a server with all other customers. At least this is how I see it. A dedicated server meanwhile is like having your own server where you have total control over it. You can only access it remotely as the server itself does not have a physicality. Whatever you do with your server, just connect to it remotely. They also have this policy that since you are your own administrator, they won’t install things for you unless you apply for their maintenance fee. I encountered a problem with them before, took a lot of email exchanges before they finally gave me a good answer. If you need to add windows components like network services and others, you would need an OS installer for the components to be installed. They actually have an i386 folder in drive C in case you want to install or uninstall components. I was thinking of connecting my remote desktop application to my dvd-rom drive and install it from there but it was a good thing that GoDaddy placed that i386 folder in case we need something. Took probably 5 customer service agents exchanging emails till the last one gave me that tip, which solved my problem
