Really Simple SSL Pro + Cloudflare

Do i need Really Simple SSL Pro on wordpress sites if I use Cloudflare?


For most of the features, you don’t need it. Cloudflare’s page rules and Edge Certificates can do basically what Really Simple SSL (Pro) can do.

However, afaik Cloudflare doesn’t support adding custom headers like X-Content-Type-Options, X-XSS-Protection, X-Frame-Options, etc. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Hope it helps!


Hello there,

I assume if you are planning to use Cloudflare, you may not require Simple SSL Pro. As @Lumito said, it covers the features.


Cloudflare does protect from XSS threats and supports common security headers.
Here’s the doc.

Also, here’s the dev guide:
