How to remove Godaddy Tracking Script

Benefit is that this file allows godaddy to track your website visitors and help them as well as you get better overall analytics in future.

Cons of wsimg tcc_1 js file by godaddy

Cons are many. First of all, you don’t want your visitors to get tracked by something which you don’t approve or are not fully aware of. Secondly, it slows down your site, alot sometimes.

For example, one of my clients texted me today that they’re getting a 404 file error on some file in inspect element, and the file name with error was:

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status code of 404 ()

and the file was:

https://img1.wsimg.com/tcc/tcc_l.combined.1.0.6.min.js.map

This file is godaddy tracking / analytical javascript file and is not necessary for your wordpress functioning. In fact it slows it down, above that, it’s broken!
