I see ok thanks for your help. Is this the reason I am getting the error about not being able to install plugins? Correct me if I'm wrong but it sounds like this has more to do with encryption/personal security.
I'm afraid I have no idea why you're unable to install plugins.
If you correctly installed the WordPress software at Bluehost and you have access to the WP-Admin dashboard you should be able to install plugins. If you're not able to, either your host is blocking it, or there's something wrong in the PHP files for your site.
For help with that you'll need to ask in the self-hosted forums if Bluehost support is not able to help you. We can't help with self-hosted sites in this forum as those sites are not on our servers and we don't have any access to them.
You can find the self-hosted forums here: https://wordpress.org/support/
I will either receive complete security from wordpress.com, or discontinue using it to reach out. Let me know what to do.
If you do not find what you are referring to answered in those support docs then type modlook into the sidebar tags on this thread for a Staff follow-up. How do I get a Moderator/Staff reply for my question? https://en.support.wordpress.com/getting-help-in-the-forums/#how-do-i-get-a-moderatorstaff-reply-for-my-question Also subscribe to this thread so you are notified when they respond and be patient while waiting. To subscribe look in the sidebar of this thread, find the subscribe to topics link and click it.
When I send my website link via email it is saying unsecure connection when opened from the email to a web browser.
After running my site through an SSL checker it is saying mismatched URL's are causing a problem as none of the common names in the certificate match the name that was entered. Just wondering what can be done?
I will see if the staff have an answer to this, if you haven't subscribed to this thread please do so in order to receive notification of their answers.
Hi Scott -
What is the site URL?
Hey thanks for your reply, my website is - https://scottturnercreativeblog.wordpress.com/
Thank you for sharing that information. The site is loading properly for me.
If someone tries to access your site via http and not https the http version should automatically redirect to the https. You can test that out in your browser. WordPress.com handles all of this behind the scenes for you. There's no additional SSL needed with a WordPress.com hosted site.
Which browser and version are you using? Is there a fire wall or browser extensions enabled? Does this happen on other networks or devices?
@lizkarkoski it was happening to me yesterday on firefox, edge, and chrome but is not happening today. Don't know what you did but it worked (at least for me)!
I'm glad to hear things are working. I'll leave this thread open so you can come back here and reply again if it occurs again.
How can I get a private key for a SSL-certificate?
All WordPressdotcom sites are served over HTTPS, there is no need for a separate SSL certificate for your WordPressdotcom site. What is it you are trying to do?
The site you've linked to is empty of content; is that the site you need help with?
I want get pfx from ssl. To do this I need a private key.
As @justjennifer said, all sites on WordPress.com are automatically served over https. We add an SSL certificate on your behalf. There is nothing else you need to do.
If you want to add SSL to a site not on WordPress.com, you need to contact your hosting provider to find out what is needed to add it there. We cannot help with sites that are not on our servers.
So I've done a lot of research and I understand the basic differences between wordpress.com and wordpress.org, but nobody is comparing the business plan on wordpress.com to wordpress.org. I've ran into several sites that say I cant install plugins like yoast on wordpress.com and others that make it look like the wordpress.com interface is extremely limiting and overall less pretty in comparison to wordpress.org. I don't need to edit code...I'm just a therapist in private practice lol. But I would like access to yoast and lots of features so I don't find myself stuck down the road.....Who decided it was a good idea to have .com and .org??? couldn't you just host the .org stuff on the same site and be like 'hey, if you want this software on your host click here'.?
Who decided it was a good idea to have .com and .org?
I have been here for 11 years and I'm not choosing to answer that question. Staff will do that and I tagged this thread with modlook for their response to it.

Also, does business wordpress.com come with an ssl certificate like squarespace does?
Yes to the ssl question.
We have 4 different plans: free, personal, premium and business. All hosting is free regardless of which plan you choose. You can view all wordpress.com plan features here https://wordpress.com/pricing/ Add a plan for each of your sites here: http://store.wordpress.com/plans/.
The Business upgrade includes:
• Google analytics
• Footer Credit Options https://en.support.wordpress.com/footer-credits/
• SEO Tools https://en.support.wordpress.com/seo-tools/
• The ability to install most plugins including woocommerce and the ability to install third party themes.

WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
Do I still get the ssl certificate if I am redirecting a domain I already own?
