    He's Gladson. He's glad you're gone.

    You can find cheaper virtual servers than bluehost shared hosting.

    I'm with Hostgator and they are having issues with the new Wordpress format as well.

    I had a site go down that has been #1 in SERPS for well over 6 years now. It's still not back up :(

    And you haven't moved it yet? LMAO

    If the site is profitable then anyone who used EIG is FUCKING INSANE. They ALL SUCK. I mean ALL OF THEM.

    Pay an extra $50 a year and get a real host. You'll sleep better and you'll make more money.

    I recommend CrocWeb...HIGHLY recommend them. Not one hiccup from them and support has answered all questions in less than 10 minutes. I have a LOT of sites up with them. Not a single problem. Almost all are wordpress too. No issues at all.

    Not surprised because I always knew BlueHost was the worst by being told from a lot of people before.

    The root cause for this is related to the WordPress 4.4 update - there is some technical information here that I have found if you're interested: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/34935


    The solution is to ask your hosting company if it is possible for them to update OpenSSL and cURL to newer versions. However, as like Blue host in my chat above, it seems hosts are unwilling or unable to update their software.

    It seems the only workaround is to replace the existing ca-bundle.crt located in wp-includes with a full list.
