MVC3 Shared Hosting on GoDaddy

As of this post GoDaddy Shared Hosting does not directly support MVC3. Have no fear though you just need to add reference to a handful of libraries to make it all work. Additionally you’ll need to set these libraries to copy to local. Simply click the following references listed and set them from false to true as the images below. Note the post Phil Haack has additional details however the list posted there is missing a couple references follow his post but add the additional libraries. Again this may change once GoDaddy updates their shared hosting environment, so this may not be needed by the time your read this. It its not working well you know what to do then…
