    Blank XML Sitemap with multiple SEO plugins

    I am getting a blank XML sitemap page with my Yoast plugin (also tried another and got the same) - http://bucketlistexplorers.com/sitemap_index.xml

    but I know the plugin is producing one as it comes up under - http://bucketlistexplorers.com/?sitemap=1

     

    Yoast have suggested using a rewrite on .htaccess but this is not working and they say there is an issue with the hosting server

    # Yoast SEO - XML Sitemap Rewrite Fix
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^sitemap_index.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^locations.kml$ /index.php?sitemap=wpseo_local_kml [L]
    RewriteRule ^geo_sitemap.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=geo [L]
    RewriteRule ^([^/]+?)-sitemap([0-9]+)?.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=$1&sitemap_n=$2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([a-z]+)?-?sitemap.xsl$ /index.php?xsl=$1 [L]
    # END Yoast SEO - XML Sitemap Rewrite Fix

    Can anyone advise why this may be and why I am being told I will have to pay for this to be sorted? It's 99% certain that it is an issue with GoDaddy, so why should I have to pay for support?
