In gTLD world, such as .COM it goes around like that:
when a domain hits its expiration date, the registry auto-renews it
this opens a 45 days period where the registrar can decide either to do nothing (then the domain gets really renewed past the 45 days delay, which means the registrar has been payed by its client to renew it), or delete the domain name (...
You may be confused as to what WordPress is. It is several things:
First, it is software that can be installed within a web space as a content management system (CMS). This can be installed using most all web hosting companies.
Second, it is a company. Duh! Right?
Last, it is a website that the company owns that allows people who do not want the added work ...
Do a traceroute on the IP address in question and you will more than likely find that the IP address traces to Europe somewhere. The whois record for the IP address in question is simply returning the registered owner of the IP address range and their organisational details. It will show up as the US as that is where GoDaddy is registered and where they will ...
I have had the same issue, example.com worked just fine but www.example.com didn't. Turned out that www.example.com needs www in the name value instead of @ for reason unknown, But @ worked for example.com.
And I didn't redirect www.example.com to example.com.
So currently I have four entries in my godaddy console for my domain, two with @ and two with www....
To be quite honest. there is absolutely NO difference when it comes to SSL certificates. The only contributing factor is the EV / non EV / Wildcard tags.
EV == Extended Validation: This means the site is actively " pinged " by the Certificate Authority on the provided IP of the domain, then a server-side script compares the IP address of the ping response ...
Many people appear to have this problem on Godaddy hosting and Godaddy have told one complainant this
It is possible that when the error is occurring that it is triggering
the Mod_sec of the hosting account. In the current hosting account
type that you have it isn't possible for us to disable that function
for security reasons. We do have hosting ...
Forward only -- Use 301 redirects to redirect from myDomain.com to myApp.appspot.com
Forward with Masking -- Use frames to keep the URL as myDomain.com while instructing the browser to fetch the content from myApp.appspot.com. The URL then doesn't change as you navigate the site.
Forwarding (of any type) is not what you want. You actually want your content ...
Check DNS Records
If your domains are registered at GoDaddy, then your MX records are likely pointing to GoDaddy's email servers and not your server.
Check your DNS and make sure that your domains have the following:
MX record pointing to mail.domain.com
mail.domain.com A record pointing to your cPanel's server IP address.
With cPanel (and many systems),...
Unless you have a dedicated IP address you cannot pull up your website using one. Shared hosts will put hundreds or thousands of sites on a single IP address. And as you can see the IP address itself will default to some page that is the default one for that server.
You will need:
A domain registrar
A DNS host
A web host
In your above example, WordPress is referring to the content management system (CMS) software available from wordpress.org, and not to the relatively expensive hosting available at wordpress.com. WordPress the software is the most popular content management system for websites.
WordPress hacks are common and frustrating. There is obviously a vulnerability that is allowing them access. Most likely this is through a plugin.
To answer your questions:
Have you used anything like Sucuri or your hosting service to scan for affected files? Check to make sure there are no unexpected administrator users - I would do this in the database ...
I know this is an old question, but it shows up early on google so I thought I would answer it. You can now enable gzip on GoDaddy by adding the following to the .htaccess in your root directory.

clientRenewProhibited is a status applied to a domain by a registrar and tells the domain registry that it should not accept renewal requests directly but only through the existing registrar.
As such the current owner of the domain can only renew the domain through their current registrar and not try and switch providers at the same time as renewing.
What closetnoc said.
Just to confirm that if you're starting off a hobby-website (or even a small professional site) it is fine to go with godaddy as your domain provider (not as a host) and hostgator or bluehost or something as your host. Wordpress will usually automatically update, but you will have to manually update plugins. Depending on how important ...
We never really own domains.
We apply to rent them when they aren't being rented by anyone else and then we continue to rent them on an ongoing yearly basis.
Any time we stop renting them, another person or organisation may apply to start renting them instead.
At this point we can only start renting them again if the other person or organisation agrees to ...
Bingbot is not "crashing". The "Fetch as Bingbot" tool within Bing's Webmaster Tools simply does not follow redirects:
From bing webmaster help:
WHAT DOES "REDIRECTION LIMIT REACHED MEAN"?
Unlike the SEO Analyzer tool, Fetch as Bingbot does not follow redirects. Instead it will let you know that the page resulted in a redirect and shows you the HTTP ...
Actually, there is a way to tell which plugins may be the problem. The P3 plugin (ironically, written by GoDaddy) can be used to generate a report of what each plugin is doing in terms of runtime. Longer run times will usually correlate with more resources consumed and give you some initial guidance on which plugins to examine first.
So the P3 ...
You almost had it; the text of the record should only be what follows "Value:"
v=spf1 include:hotmail.com ~all
See the syntax documentation on the OpenSPF website.
In the new DNS manager interface, just add a TXT record like so:
In the old DNS Manager, when you add a TXT record you will see the following:
Note: Using TXT records for SPF information is ...
It's taken me a while to work this one out in the past. Dan is right in his comment above. To change the nameservers you can't do this from within the DNS Manager, you have to do it from within the Domain Manager. In case anyone else finds this question and is using their Premium DNS service as I have done for domain names not registered with GoDaddy (...
I’m not sure what the problem is in your case (I tested your snippet and it works as expected), but maybe this works for you:
RewriteRule ^foo$ /redirect.html [redirect=temp,last]
I’m not an .htaccess expert, but I guess this would even be faster, because the RewriteRule pattern gets processed before RewriteCond.
This can be due to a wide range of factors including the number of plugins that you are running. Some factors that need to be taken into consideration are...
Is Caching Enabled
How Many Images Are Being Served
Is the Output GZiped
Basically everything that wordpress is doing will consume memory for each request. In addition to that WordPress does not scale ...
RAM usage by Linux
Linux will generally eat a lot of RAM to avoid disk caching (swap file) and does not indicate that anything is wrong if you have little to no ram free. You should only consider it a problem when you have no free memory and your Linux OS is using the swap file.
Linux Swap File
Disk Swap caching should be avoided as much as possible ...
I had another domain which only had one subdomain on it, so I used it as a test. Setting up the redirect did not affect my existing subdomains (A records).
Update: checking the "Update my nameservers and DNS settings to support this change." box deletes the www CNAME entry which means that only http://olddomain.com will forward/redirect. http://www....
Google Chrome (and possibly other browsers) hide the http:// part in the browser address bar, but it is there. If your site is accessible on example.com then you are accessing it at http://example.com/ whether your browser is showing that or not.
How to opt-out of this GoDaddy's program and remove the inserted script:
Login to your GoDaddy account
Go to your My Products
Under Web Hosting, click Manage on the right-most of the desired domain/website
Select the GoDaddy Analytics tab
Scroll down and select No, I don't want to participate in the program. then click the Confirm button
As best I've ever been able to tell thus "url/domain masking" is a made-up term used by a few web providers - They are nothing more then frames or iframes. From a technical POV there is no forwarding going on, and this is considered a bad practice.
You might want to explain what is happening - ie why this masking is not working. It would surprise ...
I had just found that GoDaddy doesn't allow "duplicates" certificate for your wildcards SSL. (as opposed to say, GlobalSign, DigiCert, which do allow them, and unlimited number of them)
That's a pity since this is often used when you manage a farm of server and each one has its own private key / csr.
Now a days Godaddy allows us to buy a higher physical Resource Level. Buy 1024 and use less plugins, I had same issue with my site but I used fewer plugins and bought 1024 (Resource Level 2). Now my site is running well with 10k visitors daily.
That folder is created by default when they set your account on that server.
You can make a search on your favourite search engine and you'll find many people talking about that.
So don't worry about it.
By the way, GoDaddy, and anybody else, doesn't matter the size or reputation, is vulnerable to attacks. But you are right thinking that they know who to ...
