Apart from unserious offerings, you can distinguish between cheaper domain-validated SSL certificates and the more expensive extended-validation SSL certificates (EV). Both certificates are technically the same (the connection is encrypted), but domain-validated certificates are cheaper, because the seller only have to check the domain. The EV-certificates ...

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 ...

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 (...

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 ...

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 ...

From the GoDaddy website: Enjoy the backing of established industry standards. There is NO TECHNICAL DIFFERENCE between our certificates and any other major Certification Authority. Source: http://www.godaddy.com/ssl/ssl-certificates.aspx?ci=9039 Pricing is a funny thing sometimes. While I have no idea why GoDaddy prices their products the way ...

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 ...

Masked forwarding uses frames to display the site being redirected to. For dropbox that does not appear to work. You may want to use use a regular redirect instead. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> <html> <head> <title>dropbox.tombrito.com</title> </head> &...

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.

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....

You will need: A domain registrar A DNS host A web host Software Content 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. ...

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. AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/text text/html text/plain text/xml text/css application/x-javascript application/javascript Source - GoDaddy Support

No, it is certainly not compatible with all browsers, but you'll probably never encounter one that doesn't support it. GoDaddy have a web page listing their compatibility. Notable exceptions include: Internet Explorer before V5.01 Netscape before V4.7 Opera before V7.5 Safari for Mac OS X before 10.3.4 Palm OS before V6.1

Your spf line is wrong, let's break it down: v=spf1 Version 1 SPF, everything right there, let's see the next parameters: include:_spf.google.com Here you're specifying that your mail is valid if you're sending it from a Google Apps domain. Are you using Google Apps?, the next parameter: ~all Denies every other domain, so if you send from a non Google ...

SPF is only one of two parts of fixing this. The other is DKIM signing. http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1311182 I'm a sender and I don't want my recipients to see the "via" link. What can I do? Gmail checks whether emails are correctly authenticated. If your messages are sent by a bulk mailing vendor or by third-party ...

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 ...

It can take weeks for this or minutes! If you sign up to webmaster tools on Google you can change the crawl rate. Ultimately though, Google will decide when to crawl your site and when to make the changes. Further more, Google does not have to display the Meta tags Description attribute on the Google search results page. If Google decides the content on ...

Just to add to ionFish's very comprehensive answer, Do subdomains need to be defined through domain registrar? They don't need to be defined through the domain registrar, but wherever the master DNS records are located. At the moment they are at GoDaddy, but if you changed the NAMESERVERS on your domain at GoDaddy to point to an alternative DNS server, ...

For GoDaddy, forwarding is redirecting every single URL on a domain to another domain using 301 redirects. This is a free service (or at least included at no extra charge with domain registration). With forwarding here are some examples of what happens: http://example.com/ 301 redirects to http://myrealdomain.tld/ http://example.com/page.html 301 ...

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.

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: RewriteEngine On 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.

Add this block to your NGINX config: server { listen 80; server_name here.your.ip.address; rewrite ^ http://example.com$request_uri? permanent; }

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.

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 ...
