I received this notice from WordPress yesterday after upgrading my site: Your web server does not currently support the SHA-2 SSL Certificate standard required by PayPal. For details see PayPal's changeover announcement. Please contact your web host to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

I am not sure what to do. I have the Launch Plan.

thank you

Hello, Thank you for your contacting us about using an SSL with a Paypal plugin. Typically, you do not need an SSL to allow paypal checkout. This is because the payment processing is typically done on paypal's servers. The setup will differ based on the the specific paypal plugin you are using for WordPress, since there are many available. We can provide more specific information, if you tell us exactly which plugin you are using. All of our SSL certificates are SHA-2 already. If you purchased an SSL from a 3rd party, I recommend: If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below. Thank you, John-Paul
