Your site is loading ok for me…

It seems the certificate was only generated a few hours ago so maybe it has only just gone live.

If you still can’t access, try clearing your browser cache or use private/incognito mode to see if you can get it that way.

@user23914, that is an issue.

@sandro can you elaborate, please? Previous websites of mine did not have also SSL certificates but adding them to Cloudflare worked fine.

If your origin server is not using SSL to secure the connection, then you are fooling your site visitors into believing their data is secure when it is not (since users can’t see through the proxy). Using the legacy “Flexible” setting with Cloudflare’s SSL does not secure data between Cloudflare and your origin.

You should set SSL/TLS to “Full (strict)” here…
…and ensure SSL is enabled and a valid certificate is deployed on your origin server.


@sjr summarised that perfectly. The bottom line, none of your sites is secure I am afraid
