Remove GoDaddy’s Broken Monitoring Script Added

By August 2, 2018March 5th, 2021Web Development

I noticed on my GoDaddy hosted websites that my browser console suddenly started throwing an error about a missing/broken script in the DOM.

<script>’undefined’=== typeof _trfq || (window._trfq = []);’undefined’=== typeof _trfd && (window._trfd=[]),_trfd.push({‘tccl.baseHost’:’’}),_trfd.push({‘ap’:’cpsh’},{‘server’:’p3plcpnl0799′}) // Monitoring performance to make your website faster. If you want to opt-out, please contact web hosting support.</script><script src=’’></script></html>

After a little research, apparently with GoDaddy’s new CPanel updates and new look they are automatically opting any sites hosted on their servers into a monitoring and tracking program. This tracking code injects a script into the <head> tags on a website. Most notably screwing up WordPress websites and breaking the DOM, and therefore screwing up other things like animation and effects that rely on scripts to run.

There is a simple, but annoying fix.

Login to your GoDaddy account > go to My Products > then click Manage All under Web Hosting:

Then choose your CPanel account. In the Top Right-Hand Corner there is a Blue Button. Click the Three Dots next to the button and choose Help Us.

Choose Opt Out and all the DOM errors stop.

No, I’m not gonna help you out.
