    My recently installed GoDaddy hosted, WordPress site, doesn’t seem to have a wp-admin htaccess file. After contacting them, they seem to think it isn’t necessary.

    1. Is it necessary?
      1. If so, how can I add one and what should it have in it (i.e. the code)?
      2. If not, how can I get rid of the BPS alert that is on every page of my wordpress dashboard?

    I assume you have GoDaddy Managed WordPress hosting and not standard/regular GoDaddy hosting correct?  If you have GoDaddy Managed WordPress hosting then the wp-admin folder is already locked down by GoDaddy Managed WordPress hosting.  So nope you do not need to add/create a wp-admin htaccess file.

    We created a special Setup Wizard option for GoDaddy Managed WordPress hosting > Setup Wizard > Setup Wizard Options > Go Daddy Managed WordPress Hosting (GDMW) > choose “Yes” > click the Save GDMW Option button > run the Setup Wizard again.

    The GDMW hosting and wp-admin htaccess file thing is pretty obscure so don’t feel like you should have figured that one out on your own.  Glad its working now.
