Just recently, I finished setting up SSL to my website which I don’t have root access.
I filled out some “SSL request form” they asked me to do. I provided them with CRT and private key
that I got from free SSL certificate service called ZeroSSL. So they can wrap up whatever’s left to apply SSL setting to my website.
I didn’t get the reply from the web hosting support yet. This part is something that bothers me.
I’m not sure if they finished their part to configure SSL to my website. With this uncertainty in mind, I gave myself a shot to set SSL setting to “Full (Strict)” under the Crypto App in Cloudflare dashboard.
“Visitor — Cloudflare — Origin Server” (Topology)
As far as I’m concerned I should get 525 or 526 error when connection between Cloudflare and Origin Server is not HTTPS encrypted under the condition of Full (Strict)
So far, I can access to my website without any problems. Does this mean I and hosting service provider did our job correctly?
