    Hi guys,

    I'm bulding a new website in Wordpress and my current host runs SSL so the web address begins with https. This is not a viable option on the new server since that would be too expensive.

    The old page is recieving loads of organic traffic on google right now, and that would most definately decrease drasticly when moving from https to http, so I tried 301 redirecting with various plugins (i.e easy 301 redirect ), but that didn't work without a SSL certificate on my new server.

    I've tried editing the .htaccess file, but to no avail - that's probably due to the fact I have no SSL on the new hosting.

    Can any of you guys come up with a solution or is my ranking screwed?
