    Hi,

    Recently I set up a blog on my own website, and attempted to set up Jetpack there. Sadly it didn’t work, after some too-ing and thro-ing it turns out my host blocks /xmlrpc.php as they deem it a high-level security risk, and have no intention of unblocking it, even by request. (Names.co.uk)

    Exact Error:

    Your website needs to be publicly accessible to use Jetpack: site_inaccessible

    Error Details: The Jetpack server was unable to communicate with your site [HTTP 403]. If you are hosted with Go Daddy, they are aware of this issue, and we at WordPress.com are working with them to fix it. If your site is hosted elsewhere, please contact Jetpack Support: http://jetpack.me/support/

    I’ve been a huge fan of jetpack in the past, using it to great effect on one of the websites I act as the community manager of. So is there no way for a workaround of some sort, or a viable alternative someone can suggest?

    Regards,

    xmlrpc.php is really not a security risk. Most hosting providers that unwisely choose to block it do unblock it by request on a per-account basis. If your hosting provider is refusing to do this, I recommend moving elsewhere.
