    Hey everyone,

    I have created my website directly through — I bought my domain, hosting and premium plan directly through WordPress 100% and no third parties. However, I am having trouble when I attempt to access the website through the browser to test it and so forth.

    My website is When you go to my websites link, it shows a google chrome error saying “Your connection is not private” and “attackers may be trying to steal your information”. None of which, obviously, is true. It’s a simple literature website that I am still working on setting up.

    How can I fix this? I have read many other Codex threads on this problem, but nothing seems to help. I just want to affirm that my site isn’t bugged with malware or anything like that, and am looking for help on how to fix this.

    The blog I need help with is
