Godaddy dedicated servers

We are currently running a website on a shared plan with an ISP I have used for a long time, unfortunately we seem to be expanding all the time. It has gotten to the point where I believe we need to be looking at a dedicated solution which will give us more control [more work, too!]. I see godaddys pricing seems to be too good to be true....any guys here use their higher end services? Feedback?

I do have an el cheapo linux account with them, and the support is a little lame, I have found. Is their dedicated' support a different animal [better]?.

Their prices are miles cheap then our provider:

Just make sure they offer SLA's, if they do then support will have to be given in the time stated (unless their are exceptional circumstances). That way if they do slip up and leave you hanging then you can seek reimbursement as they have breached your contract.

We would be looking at a win server running some asp web legacy applications, also joomla/mysql/php for 3 websites, and a minor ftp site for some data storage. My main concern is support times and quality of support.
We been using the planet for 3 years with no downtime and run coldfusion and a database server on the box for car center.

OK as per your Applications ( ASP,DOTNET,PHP/ Mysql/ Phpmyadmin..etc) Requirement go with Rackspace  Windows Dedicated Server .So You have Full Access control of server and you can use IIS webserver  for ASP or .Net site and you can install/Configure PHP/Mysql/Phpmyadmin.

If you think Rackspace Hosting is cost is high then you can go with Hostmysite VPS or Dedicated Server.
