If I have domain XXX with GoDaddy and it is configured to forward to YYY that is not with GoDaddy. If turn on URL masking the Browser URL shows domain XXX instead of domain YYY.
The problem with this is that
xxx.com shows that the connection is not secure as there is no SSL cert for xxx.com.
I was told that Cloudflare can provide SSL Proxy SSL to handle the SSL termination and serve content from
Is this possible and how do I configure this? If it is possible what Cloudflare subscription do I need.

In this case domain
xxx.com does not have a site associated with it. It is just a domain whose A record is pointing to Parked in GoDaddy. The URL the site is redirected does however have SSL protection.
If you do not want to serve any content on that domain but only redirect to the other, then you can simply follow that tutorial.
This tutorial covers redirecting one domain to another. For this, we will be redirecting domainA.com to domainB.com.

Step 1, The DNS Record:
The first thing you will need is a DNS record for @, www and any other subdomains you want to redirect, set to
. This can point to any IP address as the redirection page rule will execute first. I would recommend pointing…
You’ll only need DNS records with dummy values (provided in the tutorial) so that requests go the proxies.
