I am unable to make my wordpress website use Cloudflare CDN/Proxy


I am setting up Cloudflare on my WordPress website but unable to get the confirmation about the same. I amusing free cloudflare account and Pointed my Domain Name to Cloudflare Nameservers. I also installed and configured the Cloudflare WordPress plugin.

I scan for cloudflare check

I got the results saying :
My website is using Cloudflare DNS! But it is NOT using Cloudflare CDN/Proxy.

Please assist me with this issue.

Thank you.

Have you checked that the DNS records you use for your website are set to proxied and not DNS-only?

You should proxy the records that you use for you website, which I guess are factdr.com and www.

email should probably not be proxied, but your email setup is faulty anyway - you can’t have MX records for 2 different providers (Google, Mailgun) on the same name.


Thank you for helping with that. Now scan results are okay for using cloudflare proxy.

one more thing to fix - is NOT using Cloudflare SSL.

Thank you very much in advance

Can you please assist with this error - website is NOT using Cloudflare SSL ?

Thank you

Can you explain what you mean by that? Maybe with a screenshot of the error you see?

I have no idea what you mean by

Sure! I am scanning my website here and seeing this SSL error.

I don’t know what they mean by that either. Your website seems to be working fine.

Maybe that site is still using the old DNS data and is visiting your site without CF in the front?

well. I think i need to fix the configuration of the HTTPS Settings. can you assist?

There’s nothing to fix, your website is working. Just ignore that “error”.


This website incorrectly assumes that all Cloudflare websites use Cloudflare branded DigiCert certificates, which is far from the truth:

Until the owner of that website updates their logic to not be incorrect, you may safely ignore that warning as it has no idea what it’s talking about.
