Does Cloudflare support forwarding URL while preserving HTTPS?

I have a domain name registered with a second-tier domain name service and have discovered that their infrastructure doesn’t provide their customers with the ability to forward URLs that contain https. Their tech support department confirmed this on a call I had with them today. I had created a CNAME record with them that pointed my “www” subdomain (e.g. https://www.example.com) to an application URL app.buzzsprout.com and that URL works fine and forwards all http and https URLs to my page on buzzsprout. But when I tried to set up URL forwarding so that any requests to my root (they call it a “bare” domain name) to buzzsprout (e.g. https://example.com), the forward doesn’t work. Apparently some domain registrars provide this capability while others don’t. Does Cloudflare support this capability? I want to be sure it does before I go through the trouble of moving my registration over. Thanks!

Cloudflare can do any combination of forwarding with Page Rules for the URLs you listed:
http → http
http → https
https → http
https → https
