NSS Nameservers: Can I point both to Cloudflare & Wesbsite's Host?!

Hello,

Can I point my Domain’s Nameservers (NSS) - to both Cloudflare’s NSS & my Websites Hosting NSS Nameservers?! Or should I choose 1 only?!

My domain has been using Cloudflare NSS for years… And it was using, it appears, Clodflare Security Certificate for https:// …

My website at my Website’s Hosting place was using Self-signed Certificates, and when on Cloudflare - the Cloudflare Certificate, but now - Self-signed Certificates are not working anymore,

My Hosting company tells - if you point to Hosting NSS, we will provide you our Certificate…

My Website - is most of the time on Cloudflare, but sometimes I am Pausing Cloudflare for a short time - because of works on my website…

If I pause Claudflare - I have no Cerificate and https: users are getting a big Yellow Warning - this site has no Certificate, get out…

Can I just use BOTH NSS - Cloudflares & my Hosting, to be covered with Certificate in both occasions, or should I choose some 1 of them both?! and Which one?!

only the two that are assigned by cloudflare. It won’t work otherwise. Great getting started #Tutorials for setting up and #CommunityTip to search in case you run into trouble. Maybe start here, The DNS Tab and let us know how it’s going and if any questions.

And, you should have a certificate on the host as well as cloudflare free universal ssl to ensure you have end to end encryption. Ideally, you get a working site with ssl in place first and then set up cloudflare as it makes the process of getting started easier and troubleshooting any issues a lot less complex. Lots of posts in #security talking about ssl options.
