How to debug "Future home of something quite cool" issue?

So you have a WordPress website on GoDaddy and you see the message "Future home of something quite cool" when you should be seeing your website. This error can be caused by a couple of issues. Let's dig in.

Your website has an expired certificate
When your website's SSL certificate expires it starts showing "Not Secure" in the address bar. In order to install a new certificate, it is always better to delete the expired one first. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to uninstall the SSL certificate in GoDaddy's cPanel.

After deleting the SSL certificate, If you are still seeing the "Future home of something quite cool", this is most probably because you are redirecting HTTP to HTTPS, check your .htaccess file and/or check if any SSL-related plugin is redirecting HTTP to HTTPS.

Rename the plugins folder in WordPress
So you followed the above advice and you are still seeing the message? In most cases, it might be caused by one of the plugins you've installed. So go ahead and rename the plugins folder in your WordPress installation at wp-content/plugin. For example, you can rename it to something like "plugins_new". Once you have renamed it, try accessing your site. If the issue is resolved make sure you rename the plugins folder to the original name "plugins".  Also do not forget to activate the plugins that you want to keep active since renaming the plugins folder deactivates all the plugins.
