Go ahead and enable the switch editor loader method. This will change the way Elementor loads to a way that will work with your hosting company. In my experience, this happens mostly with GoDaddy hosting. Most of the time, if Elementor is not working with Godaddy doing this, will fix it.

After you have made the change and saved it you need to confirm it worked. You can double check that the issue has been fixed by going to “pages” from your WordPress menu and clicking “edit with Elementor” on any page.
