    Hi Scott -

    What is the site URL?

    Hey thanks for your reply, my website is -

    Thanks again

    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. handles all of this behind the scenes for you. There's no additional SSL needed with a 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)!

    How can I get a private key for a SSL-certificate?

    0 0

    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?

  • Hi there,

    As @justjennifer said, all sites on 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, 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 and, but nobody is comparing the business plan on to I've ran into several sites that say I cant install plugins like yoast on and others that make it look like the interface is extremely limiting and overall less pretty in comparison to 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. Please 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.

    Also, does business come with an ssl certificate like squarespace does?

    0 0

    See here

    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 plan features here Add a plan for each of your sites here:

    The Business upgrade includes:
    • Google analytics
    • Footer Credit Options
    • SEO Tools
    • The ability to install most plugins including woocommerce and the ability to install third party themes. Scroll down to Business Plan Upgrades

    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

    Do I still get the ssl certificate if I am redirecting a domain I already own?

    I'm sorry, I don't think I'm understanding the lingo. If I am bringing a domain with me and having it redirected to WordPress is it considered to be hosted by WordPress? Thereby having an ssl certificate applied to it?

    @therapyjoe is a free, open source software project. You can install it at your own host (indeed, with a "click here" installation) and do your own plugins, themes, and maintenance. is managed service: we've installed it, set up the plugins that we think will help most, and maintain that installation for you. If you like analogies (I do!) it's like the difference between a recipe and a restaurant. And we just recently started allowing third party plugins (like outside ingredients?) on the business plan.

    If you are hosted here, we provide the SSL.

    So I had a domain name and premium plugins. After following the directions to delete my account and page (I'm setting up a custom one on my own server) I'm unable to contact support through live chat and I'm now getting an invalid cert error.

    Your connection is not private
    Attackers might be trying to steal your information from (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID

    I want all things related removed so I can move forward with my new website.

    HI there,

    Our SSL certificate is removed the moment you cancel the mapping upgrade with us, but your browser doesn't know that.

    If a site has an SSL certificate, it places an instruction in your browser in what's called a HSTS header to always load the domain over https. That header in your browser is what's causing it to try and still load the domain over https, even though the domain no longer has an SSL certificate.

    That header cannot be removed manually like browser cookies can, but it should expire in a day or two at which point you'll be able to load the domain over an http connection. For now, if your browser has an option to add an exception for the domain, go ahead and do that. Otherwise you'll have to use a different browser for the next couple of days.

    Visitors to your site shouldn't see that warning, unless they recently visited your site while the SSL cert was still valid, in which case they'll also need to wait for the HSTS headers in their browsers to expire.

    Does use multidomain SSL ? Beucase I see that our certificate used on several other domains.

    Hi all,

    I'm currently transitioning from a self managed and hosted site to a new managed platform and am really liking just about everything WordPress has to offer. My only gripe is with SSL certificates... I understand that WP sites are secured with Let's Encrypt by default, but this isn't satisfactory for my organisation.

    Our current site uses a COMODO RSA Extended Validation certificate and I want to use this on my WordPress site. I've done some Googling and seen the articles about plugins like Really Simple SSL, etc., and adding my current domain to WP and altering the .htaccess file via FTP, but I can't test if this will work for sure until paying for a yearly plan - but I'm not interested in investing in WP unless I can add my own certificate.

    Can anybody help with this or confirm the plugins like Really Simple SSL and/or .htaccess modification will allow me to install my own certificate?

    I am aware of the .com vs .org discussion/question; we need the features of .com, with our own SSL cert.

    Thank you

    All sites on have default hosting and SSL Certifications taken care for you. You cannot change, or modify that with, or edit any files. You can only do that on self-hosted sites.

    There isn’t any plugins that will allow you to do this on, and you’d have to be on the Business plan, and you would possibly mess up your site if there is a plugin that lets you do that which isn’t recommended. Let me know if you have any further questions.

    The request you are making might be possible under the business plan. I have added modlook tag to this thread for a confirmed reply from the support staff.

    Hi there,

    It's not possible to use another SSL certificate on even if you upgrade to the Business plan.

    If you want to use your own certificate you can use another managed hosting provider like Pressable:
