Tech support for VSP Managed CentOS at Go Daddy

I found that setting up a VSP server with Go Daddy was not very straight forward.  A lot of configuration was required.  I chose the managed CentOS; however, the tech support is only available through chat, which requires a lot of waiting.  Then once getting a chance to chat with them the help was not quite the “Fanatical Support” as I have seen when working on servers from Rackspace.

As an example of Go Daddy’s less than fanatical support, here is a response from one of my recent chats:

You will need to review. I would recommend going through those videos. They are super helpful with the start up process for vps as These servers are sold with the expectation that you are or have a server administrator capable of the configuration and day to day management of the server.
