GoDaddy is tracking your website’s behavior

GoDaddy is tracking your website’s behavior and sometimes breaks your site

If your web-hosting company is GoDaddy, then you are in a bit of a situation here…

But there is a fix!

But don’t panic, the is easy opt-out setting on your hosting panel by going to myh.godaddy.com, logging in, and clicking on the hosting account that you want to exclude. From there, click the “…” button, and “Help Us,” then click “Opt Out.” Let your webmaster know about it if you are hosting on GoDaddy. If you need help, don’t hesitate to ask here by living a comment.

PS: Web Design Heaven’s clients do not worry. We already applied the fix to your websites.
