I am working on an e-commerce platform. My application is done by Laravel and has a separate backend API too. And connects with many 3rd party applications and services.
At the moment, we have Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate installed.
Since I’m new to Cloudflare CDN, I tried this on my personal blog and I can see when I use CDN, it changes my SSL certificate automatically too. I have following questions.
- Can I use the CDN only without changing the SSL certificate?
- If I cannot use CDN without changing SSL certificate automatically, can it be an issue to my existing application? I mean for the connection between API and front end? And also all other payment services like PayPal and SEPA ?
- This is a live application and has many users. So is it ok to change name servers like this? Can we expect any downtime?
Thank you in advance.
Appreciate your assistance.
