- Domain registrar access.
If you are using a Flipdish website, then you do not need to follow this guide, as Flipdish websites always come with SSL.
Create a free Cloudflare account
Enter your Email address and Password.
Click Create Account.
Once your account gets created you will be assigned 2 Name Servers (NS).
Set up your domain on Cloudflare
Once logged in to your Cloudflare account, on your main page click on ADD SITE.
Enter your domain name (without www) and continue.
Select the Free plan and continue.
Cloudflare will now scan your domain settings or DNS records. On the next page you should see them all listed. If not, then you will have to add the ones missing manually.
Click continue. To enable Cloudflare, you need to change your existing NS to the new ones you have been assigned.
To do so, please log in to your domain registrar and change your existing NS. The changes may take a few hours or 1 day to take effect (depending on your registrar).
You will receive an email as soon as Cloudflare gets successfully enabled for your domain.
Set-up SSL settings
Under SSL/TLS tab, set SSL on Flexible.
On this same page, turn ON “Always use HTTPS”.
Under Scrape Shield tab, turn OFF Email Address Obfuscation.
Under DNS tab, click on the cloud next to your A record and CNAME to make it orange. The orange color means that Cloudflare is active.
After successfully following the above steps, your domain will be protected with SSL and will change to a "https://".
