GoDaddy windows hosting with WordPress Permalinks

After moving multiple domains hosted in GoDaddy to a single Delux windows account I found out that the WordPress permalinks (e.g. SEO nice URL) aren't working anymore.

There are multiple discussions online regarding this problem, mostly regarding redirecting the 404 error page. However the solution is SUPER simple - RTFM (the following answer appears in the WordPress permalink setting page): add a file "web.config" containing the following lines

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rule name="Main Rule" stopProcessing="true">
<match url=".*" />
<conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
<action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" />
