Hi @dean3, check out this article on certificates, https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200170516-How-do-I-add-SSL-to-my-site-. The net, once your site is active, if we don’t detect SSL in place, we order a free Universal SSL certificate, that takes ~24 hours after the site is active. The Order SSL certificate link you showed leads to a popup with these options:
- Free Universal SSL - Free - protects example.com and *.example.com
- Dedicated SSL Certificate - $5 / month - protects example.com and *.example.com
- Dedicated SSL Certificate with Custom Hostnames Dedicated to your domain- $10 / month - protects example.com and *.example.com, and up to 50 more hostnames or wildcards of your choosing
You don’t need to take any action, once the cert is in place, the message on the Crypto tab that reads “It may take up to 24 hours after the site becomes active on Cloudflare for new certificates to issue” will change to " Universal SSL Status Active Certificate"
