Request a Mod_Rewrite explanation for Godaddy.com

forumpoll's picture

So i have paid for multiple web hosting packages from, websites all over the internet. And most of them, i really never had a problem with. Until i hit Godaddy.com. I would definitely not recommend the hosting packages to anyone. It is severally over rated, and over advertised. One of my biggest issues, was getting Mod_rewrite to work on godaddy. I tried and i tried to figure out, why Mod_Rewrite was not working on godaddys webhost. I tried multiple ways to active it, via .htaccess but it yielded nothing. I was going to submit a ticket, and find out a official answer. But they have no support box!

Some links i found while on my quest to, get Mod_rewrite to work on Godaddy webservers.
(keep in mind, most of godaddy's help tutorials are outdated....)

https://www.godaddy.com/help/what-is-mod-rewrite-898
https://davidwalsh.name/mod_rewrite-htaccess-godaddy
tackoverflow.com/questions/.../mod-rewrite-with-godaddy-hosting

So my question is, why isn't Mod_rewrite function working with Godaddy?

So i ended up figuring out...

Godaddy has some security features, that does not enable Mod_rewrite depending on package you have purchased....Which is lame....

Great Article Idea

This is a great idea for an article. I'm going to bookmark it for later. I don't currently have a GoDaddy account to test on.
