I have a webserver at home which I have had on/off for a few years now. When I learn something I try to put into practice. Some (long) years ago it was php, these days I’ve become good with python at work and wanted to start my personal website.
I wanted to have SSL and checking what my options were. The easiest was a self-signed certificate that was for sure more than enough for my needs. It was just a pain to have always the untrusted warning everywhere I tried to connect.
So I heard about cloudflare and the free SSL solution they have. I also decided to buy a very cheap domain (1$/year) on namecheap.
I created both accounts and changed the nameservers on namecheap for the ones that are given by cloudflare, but now what? How do I actually connect my homeserver to cloudlflare/domain? Is it on namecheap account is it now on cloudflare account since I changed the nameservers.
I realize that I bit more that I can chew but I really thought this was gonna be easier to wrap my head around.
