One of my domains is not able to create a Mailchimp RSS campaign. I get the
message that the URL is not a valid RSS feed. Although you can access the
URL without errors,  the WC3 RSS Validation Service that Mailchimp uses gets
the following error:

Server returned [Errno 1] _ssl.c:504: error:14077438:SSL
routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:tlsv1 alert internal error

During a chat with my hosting provider this morning I was told that since it
is an SSL related issue to check at Cloudflare. 

Cloudflare's response was:  "The Validator service not supporting SNI is a
known issue; unfortunately there is little we can do about this; the
validator service needs to be updated to support this."

The domain is:  shelbysessentials.com

Do you intend to update your service to support SNI and if so when or at
least is there a way to exclude this error in your validation.  We have
hundreds of sites and we include Mailchimp integration and part of our
service is to set our subscribers up with RSS driven campaigns but this
issue is blocking our ability.  Please advise.
