I am trying to self host a website, I’m using a load balancer called Kemp and a wildcard SSL from Cloudflare. I finally have an understanding of how Kemp uses SSL. I registered a garbage URL for testing purposes to see if I could even make it work. Now that I have been able to make it work, I want to use my real websites URL and ditch the slow host I’ve been wasting money on all this time. Am I able to have more than 1 free wildcard SSL with Cloudflare? If not, can I throw away the garbage URL I setup for testing and use my real URL in it’s place to get wildcard SSL?
What is the wildcard certificate you are referring to?
Cloudflare provides a root + wildcard subdomain certificate (example.com, *.example.com) for each zone. You also get unlimited origin certificates, valid only for origins behind Cloudflare as it’s only trusted by Cloudflare themselves, that users don’t visit directly.
