Few years back I hosted my website on godaddy but I was not that tech savy so they (customer care people) assisted me on hosting the website on their shared hosting server. Since then I am on a constant endeavor to educate myself in tech area and now I feel to it is pretty easy to host a website and make it up and running live.
But when I needed the assistance back then to host my website on godaddy, they were able to have access my website files and data, moving them on their end in a particular folder to make the website go live. They were also telling me to remove the custom CSS codes from a particular line as it was giving me the some error.
So I want to know, is it possible to prevent hosting providers getting access to my website files and data in it and how ?
