I'm trying to get mod_rewrite to work on a client's website who insisted that we use Godaddy web hosting. She's got a shared linux hosting account. Will mod_rewrite work (using .htaccess) and if so, how? I'm not sure if Godaddy uses Apache or not.


Does the Name Help with the votes?

Yes, GoDaddy's Linux hosting uses Apache, and mod_rewrite via .htaccess is available to you. A quick Google revealed a number of caveats you may run into, top amongst them being 15-60 minute delays before .htaccess changes take effect.

Frankly, I avoid GoDaddy like the plague, especially for hosting. Nothing but bad experiences with them.
