Elp Needed: SSL Security for Dubai Buzz Website on Cloudflare

Hey Cloudflare Community,

Hope you’re all doing well! I’m managing my clients website https://dubaibuzz.ae/, a website where they share all the cool stuff happening in Dubai.

I’m trying to make sure this website is safe and secure, and I know SSL is super important for that. I’ve heard Cloudflare has good SSL options, but I’m not sure where to start.

Could you guys help me out with some easy tips on SSL security? Specifically:

  1. Why SSL matters for websites like Dubai Buzz that share content and engage with users.
  2. How to pick the right SSL setup and level of security on Cloudflare.
  3. Any tricks for setting up SSL with website builders or other tools we might use.
  4. What to do to keep our SSL certificates updated and our site secure over time.

If anyone has experience with SSL security, especially with Cloudflare, I’d really appreciate your advice. Currently they are using hosting’s default SSL.

Thanks a bunch for your help!

Best,
Norma Harris

  1. SSL is crucial as it encrypts data between the user and the site, protecting sensitive information and building trust with your audience. https://www.cloudflare.com/learning/ssl/what-is-ssl/
  2. On Cloudflare, start with a free Universal SSL certificate. If there is a specific feature you are after that isn’t handled by universal SSL, you can upgrade. All edge certificate options are listed here: Get started with SSL/TLS · Cloudflare SSL/TLS docs
  3. When using website builders, look for SSL options in their settings and follow the prompts. Cloudflare also offers origin certificates.
  4. With Cloudflare, SSL certificates are renewed automatically, but always ensure your contact details are up to date and regularly check your site’s SSL status in the Cloudflare dashboard.
