Am I supposed to list all of Cloudflare's IP addresses or is there one or two that will work?

I was trying to connect my SSL certificate from Cloudflare to my DNS by replacing the name server two Cloudflare’s name servers. My DNS is asking for an IP address for Cloudflare. I see about 12 IP addresses for Cloudflare. Am I supposed to list all of Cloudflare’s IP addresses or is there one or two that will work?

SSL and DNS are not related. But if you are setting up Name Servers, you might need the IP addresses of the two Cloudflare name servers they assigned to you. What are the .ns.cloudflare.com name servers Cloudflare instructed you to use?

which one does it have?

If I change the name servers will this give me https: or no?
eugene.ns.cloudflare.com
jacqueline.ns.cloudflare.com

The domain I am trying to get an SSL for is a forwarded Domain connected to a ecwid store that I do not have access to the host, only the DNS.

If the website is not on your domain, you can’t add SSL to it.

It is my domain. I own it that’s why I was able to forward it. I have access to my DNS. The site I am forwarding it too is through Ecwid.

OK. Let me explain it better…
I own onlyinnewyork.wtf.
I have forwarded it to https://onlyinnewyorkwtf.ecwid.com, which I use as a shopping cart, but I do not have access to it’s hosting.

I am trying to get an https: on my forwarded domain, which is onlyinnewyork.wtf.

Disreguard I found the answer -

Can DNS redirect http to https?

No, you cannot redirect HTTP to HTTPS at the DNS level. This is something you have to configure on your web server (because it manages the protocol). If you don’t have access to your web server, you will need to contact your web hosting provider.

Just in case someone else has the same question.
