akismet API key

My managed wp site came with akismet installed and activated.  I deactivated it today while trouble shooting another plug in.  When I reactivated akismet, it is now asking for an API key.  Where do I get an API key from godaddy to reactivate it?  A godaddy search came up with nothing and google only found an old thread from 2010 that had a link, but it's dead now.  thanks.

Re: akismet API key

Hi @skunkaperecords,


Here is a link to the Akismet site: 


Akismet is an independent service from GoDaddy.  WP comes with Akismet installed as it is an AutoMattic product.  Currently, I don't think you can get the full service free.


Hope this helps,
