While running an experiment into the speed of GoDaddy’s shared hosting, I came across the wonderful news that a bare bones page loaded in 33 and 200 ms respectively on the east and west coast of the United States.
I also came across a puzzling drop in my performance grade after closing the html tag I’d accidentally left open according to Pingdom.
Not only was I told to configure entity tags (which I’ll have to get into on a later post), but an image had been declared “moved permanently.” I was running a simple text page in my experiment, so this puzzled me even more. Then, I noticed a call to two domains I’d not initiated.
It might improve performance across the board for all users, but I did’t appreciate it causing a drop in my performance grade on Pingdom. So I followed Kromin’s advice and opted out.
Here’s how you can opt out too:
Click on your name in the upper right
Click on Manage Hosting
Click on the Ellipses (…) and then Settings
Click on GoDaddy Analytics
Scroll down and Click No, I don’t want to participate in the program before clicking the Confirm Button
