Do I need a Third Party SSL Certificate?

Hello. Prior to using cloudflare I purchased my own SSL Certificate for the site.

I notice since using cloudflare as a CDN ( paid version ) it is using the cloudflare SSL certificate to secure my site.

  1. Do I actually need a SSL certificate or can I get by with just using the cloudflare ssl certificate?

  2. On the free plan ( for a different site ) can I just use the cloudflare SSL certificate?


Hi Martin, my name is also Martin :wink:

  1. just use the CloudFlare one. If you need one for your Origin Server, CloudFlare also offers you a origin Server SSL certificate. OR you use Lets Encrypt on your origin Server
  2. Yes of course!
