    This is almost always a wp-config.php problem. Most likely you have checked and rechecked the database name, username, and password. What about the DB_HOST? If you have changed hosting companies that is likely the culprit. I know you can use "localhost" on Hostgator but on GoDaddy it is likely something else.
