DOCX upload restricted
About a year ago, if your website used godaddy, you will be able to allow users to upload DOCX files via a form etc. Now its been denied. Its a blackmail luring you into buying the dedicated hosting package. The problem is that when you get an error while uploading a DOCX file on any website, the whole website hangs for a few minutes.

ADVICE FROM Anonymous
Every big gun has a way of being manipulative and get away with it. DOCX is an industry standard and denying DOCX file uploads is ridiculous.

I have also noticed that many hosting service providers get into bad experiences like viruses etc and they dont want to spend money on fixing the problem, so the easy solution would be to block, block, block.
