So I have a client that has their DNN site hosted on GoDaddy Shared Hosting. I believe DNN version is 6.0 or the previous version to that. Anyway, GoDaddy decided to upgrade ASP.net to 4.5, which in return causes an issue with DNN. Here is the error:

System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Security.Permissions.SecurityPermission, mscorlib, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.

From what I've read doing searches, this happens when using DNN versions prior to 6.25 and ASP.net 4.5. ASP requires Full Trust, and GoDaddy shared hosting only allows for Medium trust. I've tried upgrading to 6.2.5 and even 7.0.6 with no luck (same error message). Unfortunately, I've got quite a few clients in this same situation. GoDaddy is absolutely no help with this issue. They are famous for just blaming DNN and wanting my clients to upgrade to a private server or a virtual private server. I need to get my clients' sites back up and running and was wondering if anyone has a remedy for this issue?

After I get this issue resolved, I will not be pointing any future clients to use GoDaddy and I will try my best to convince my current clients to switch over to PowerDNN. Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated. It will save me a HUGE headache!

Hi Randy,

Thanks for posting.  Unfortunately I doubt that there will be much that you can do on GoDaddy's environment.  A pretty common thread among DNN developers and consultants is "If you're on GoDaddy, we're not going to help you out."

I do work for PowerDNN and we'd love to help get your clients moved  over.  If you need more info, you can call our sales team or you can sign up online (make to to select "I have built a site somewhere else and want to move it to PowerDNN").

Another /agree. Consider powerdnn.com or dnn4less.com. Both get good reviews on the DNN forums.
