I'm working on building my first website in a non-corporate environment. When I go to http://example.com it works fine. But when my friend tried, they found that GoDaddy forces HTTPS everywhere and got a cert error. Then the got a generic page about "Future home of something quite cool." (it forwards to a cgi folder of some sort).
Is there a way to disable this behavior? If at all possible, I don't want to pay for a SSL certificate if I can avoid it. The page just displays some basic stuff for my school work. I don't collect customer data, so I don't think SSL is necessary.
I'm using Linux hosting with CPanel right now. Though that can change easily enough. Any help is greatly appreciated!
