Was notified by a customer this morning that our site was redirecting off of a google search results page. When I checked our host files using filezilla, noticed that our htcaccess.txt file had been edited a few days ago and we did not do that! I removed the bad line of code and all is well.
Hi @teafortwo. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! I haven't heard of issues with a htaccess.txt file, but what you've described can happen with a .htaccess file, so perhaps that's what you're referring to. Either way, you can take a good look at this Sucuri post for some good advice on securing your website. I hope it helps!
