Hi, my site is on a Siteground hosting, I would like to switch to Cloudfare. I see that it is possible to activate it easily. However, during the transition, I would like to avoid downtime.
For another site that I have already moved to Cloudfare, I had about 2 hours of downtime due to an unsecure connection issue (I think it’s due to CNAME record propagation times).
Upon asking a Siteground technician I was told that the problem was due to the option to “reconfigure the website to work via www when activating Cloudflare from Site Tools”.
In his opinion, if I uncheck this option I should not have this problem and there should be no service interruption during the migration.
Can you confirm that this is the case? Are there any other aspects I need to keep in mind before activating Cloudfare to avoid downtimes?
My site by the way already works via www, so that option should not be necessary.
