I agree, you should ask GoDaddy because the management packages and set up procedures vary from provider to provider. A sample of services they could do are:
* Software packages and upgrades as required
* E-mail administration
* DNS administration
* Firewall tuning
* SUDO access to server administration function
* Server monitoring for any TCP/UDP port requested
* APC reboot port
If you are not confident in being able to manage you server effectively, I would at least invest in some back up, but recommend you find some sort of management solution.
Hope this helped,
