Can’t make changes to Godaddy Managed WordPress Hosting? Neither could I.

go daddy managed wordpress hosting

I have been with many hosting companies over the past 11 years.  From BlueHost to Skippy Kidd (Pressable), to WPengine and Godaddy.  One thing I don’t compromise on when it comes to WordPress, is Managed Hosting… it is a must for me and my clients.  For smaller website and businesses I use Godaddy Managed WordPress hosting, it has be pretty good with a few hiccups here and there… but for the cost it is a good choice, except on big problem: I could not make changes to the WordPress sites in certain locations.

I noticed that on certain campuses I can view the front end and even view the back end, but I can’t make changes to the site and can’t view certian dynamic features, for example: Visual Composer.

At first I freaked out, thinking that sites are not functioning correctly, maybe they are hacked.  I was disabling plugins and reverting back to previous version, to no avail.

Godaddy support (the second guy knew his stuff) said that it has do to with the firewall on the campus not allowing encrypted data out… I am not sure if that is correct or not, I am a designer/manager type, but I passes that on to the IT guys.  In the end I was able to make correct changes after testing several options out.  Here is what the IT concluded, even if I don’t know what it means: I made a specific rule for your computer that  doesn’t apply the application\web filter.

There it is, I hope it helps, I know first hand it can be an empty feeling not being able to edit your WordPress sites.
