SSL + Cloudflare + Godaddy

Hi,

 

I'm using Cloudflare as CDN. I have purchased their SSL certificates, but https doesn't work on my site. They have said to me that I have to ask my hosting provider to configure HTTPs for my website.

 

Please, what should I do? I have to buy ssl certificate from godaddy too?

 

thank you and best regards

Hey @oppioppi and @grantog

 

After generating CSR and receiving the SSL, you'll need to upload and install the certificate. 

 

Referencing this Help article - 

Manually installing SSL on your cPanel Hosting. Uplading and Installing Your Certificate

To complete these steps, you need to have the CRT file provided to you by the company who issued your SSL certificate.

  1. Upload your certificate
    1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
    2. Click Web Hosting.
    3. Next to the cPanel account you want to use, click Manage.
    4. Click cPanel Admin.
    5. In the Security section, click SSL/TLS Manager.
    6. Under Certificates (CRT), click Generate, view, upload, or delete SSL certificates.
    7. Use the Upload Certificate section to upload the CRT file from your local machine and click Upload Certificate.
  2. Activate your certificate
    1. From the SSL/TLS Manager, click Manage SSL Sites
    2. Click Browse Certificates and select the certificate that you want to activate. This will auto-fill the fields for the certificate.
    3. Click Install Certificate.

Hi Oppi,

 

First of all you will need to generate a CSR code you can generate this by looking for 'SSL/TLS' on your hosting control panel under Security.

 

Apply this to your SSL with cloudflare wait for your SSL to go 'Active' only follow the steps below once it is Active, then check this article below:

Hope this helps.

Hi @LilyL,

 

I thank you for helping me. But Cloudflare doesn't release a CRT file for their "dedicated ssl certificate" and their free version isn't good.

Hi

I have 2 site that are linked to GoDaddy:

VideoDubber.com which runs a WordPress

2CENTS.co.il  which runs on Wix

The 2nd one already has HTTPS, but the first doesn't, and I noticed a decrease in its Google organic ranking in the past year...

So basically, I don't need to buy the SSL from GoDaddy to have HTTPS on my site (by using CloudFlare instead)?

Thanks,

Boaz
