I hosted my website on wordpress.com for 5 years. Just recently, I decided I would port it to wordpress.org using my boyfriend's server on bluehost.com. When I ported over to wordpress.org, I went to my website and got the standard message from Google Chrome:
Your connection is not private
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from www.brunchgang.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).
After doing some reading, it appears that it is related to the SSL certificate. I'v enever purchased a SSL certificate in my life but I believe all wordpress.com sites had SSL by default. I thought since I moved to an external host using wordpress.org, I would have no SSL at all. Turns out, I have an SSL certificate tied to my URL that is from a website completely unrelated to my website.
My domain: brunchgang.com Domain that SSL is issued to: bacls.org
Does anyone know what to do here?? Originally, the error message only appeared when I was using https://brunchgang.com and I could get around it by using http://brunchgang.com, but even this doesn't work anymore. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!
Looks like your website, security certificate AND issuing information all looks proper to me. The error is new as of January 2017 and isn't about your website as much as it is a broader push to SSL. Looks like you are all stup properly though? Hope that helps?
...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
