SSL Provisioning Delays

Update: This delay has now been cleared and newly created sites are being issued certificates without delay. Thank your your patience.


There is currently a delay in issuing new SSL certificates for newly added custom domains on WordPress.com and VIP sites.    This does not affect previously added  domains.  Nor does it impact the data on your site.
