    I couldn't think of the best section that this thread could be posted so I came here. Feel free to transfer it to a more suitable section.

    Anyway, any1 currently facing problems with their WP website? I got hosting over there and cant connect to the /wp-admin neither to the site itself. FYI i was trying to make a plugin ( from a member here, which name i will not announce cuz i don't know if it is permited) run, which asked for database username,name,password and host. I doubt its that but still its an information.
    So any1 got any problems with their WP? or i did something wrong setting up that plugin?

    Don't know what's wrong to be honest, but I would recommend you change your hosting service. GoDaddy is the worst. Try Hostgator, JDRHosting or Hostamus. I use all 3 of them and never had any issues.

    Had problems with Godaddy that were similar to yours, was the Bulletproof security htaccess file in the wp-admin folder - deleted that and could log in, then re-did it and it all worked okay.

    I have fixed the problem. I had to download config.php, add something and upload it again. the ending of the code was missing tho and had to add it myself when i uploaded, so it took me some time to figure things out.It wasn't the plugin at all btw. I wouldn't use hostgator, not because of the thread you linked Dkovik, but because of the problems they had around new years eve and it seems that they have these kind of problems with their servers going down every year. Not that I have that big ''idea'' for my site but still, wouldn't like to worry if its up or down :)


    Thanks for your help and suggestions guys :)

    yes, that's just site crash, and you have to start it all from beginning, it is not about which hosting, it's about when you configuring plugin it got mess up with datebase, any hosting can happen.

    :)) Hostgator is getting shittier every minute... I would not host any of my websites on HG. Do not take this as a recommendation, but I first got hosting from iPage. It was crap (probably the worst, for about 3-4 months), but something "wonderful" happened in the past 2 months, their hosting is working great, I'd even say fantastic, considering that they're hosted in USA and I'm accessing my websites from Europe. But IDK for how long it will last. Anyway, if I were to recommend one, I'd say Digital Ocean. They have very cheap unmanaged VPS (starting from 5$) and I have two $5 VPSs and never had any problems with them. It really is worth it and it's a plus (in my case) that it's unmanaged, I really wanted to learn for myself how to install wordpress and/or use other things, run scripts, etc. on a VPS. Anyway, if you're looking for unmanaged VPS, Digital Ocean is great. As for shared hosting, I wouldn't really know what to recommend, as I've had pretty bad experiences with every host I've tried (except for iPage lately, but there's still time to f**k things up :D ).
    As for GoDaddy hosting, it's crap. Transfer your websites when you get the chance, it really is a waste of time.

    I do not recommend Godaddy for hosting. I just buy domains from them because they are really cheap.

    I had a VPS on GoDaddy. I shut it down due to bandwidth and CPU throttling. Possibly they overloaded their servers. When I brought GScraper, Scrapebox, and GSA Search Engine Ranker home to my local network, what was taking all day to do because of Full CPU usage, took only a few minutes to complete with a maximum CPU usage of 2 percent.
