OK…I have no idea what you mean by your response.
But, before you read on, I appreciate the fact that you are even responding.
2 emails ago, I made it obvious I am in business as a Marketing Pro,
and am looking for a place to do my SSL business with my clients.
Problem is, not one person in 2 weeks can tell me simply, here are
steps 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5…DONE!
They are all answers to my questions that make me want to ask 5 more questions.
Here is an example of what I mean sdayman, (which I have no idea what your name is)
- Move them to a host that supports HTTPS. If you’ve got clients, do it right.
OK…I wouldn’t want to do it wrong. “to a host”? That’s why I am talking to CloudFlare, right?
Or, do I completely not get what you mean?
- The free cert here is excellent, and getting better all the time. The free ones used to be shared,
but the new free ones aren’t. That was the main reason people bought the $5 ones.
So, would the “free” one’s be OK for ALL of my clients? And what determines that?
What would be one that they would “pay” for, and why would they want to do that?
- You can’t hide Cloudflare from a client. A client who pokes around a little can easily figure it out.
- You only need access to their domain registrar so you can point the name servers to Cloudflare.
You might need cPanel access just to double check the DNS records here before switching over.
Is this work I do, or can I get CloudFlare to do it? And if so, what is that cost?
When you say, “Point the name servers to CloudFlare”, and “double check the DNS records”,
I have no idea what you are talking about. Exactly I mean. I know what a c-panel is, and
I think I pretty much know what DNS is (I think).
It’s best to use a separate Cloudflare account for each client. That way clients have access to their services
so you don’t become that hated dev who leaves a client high and dry.
Having an individual account for each is OK, but, so I would tell them who I am using,
and they don’t need me anymore after I charge them to get it done? And then they call
you guys and find out I charged them 20x the amount they could have done it with you?
Or they learn they could have done it for free? Man, if I up-sold them or cross-sold them,
I’m pretty much thinking they will stop paying me at that point. Or, am I just looking at this wrong?
And, whoever you are, thanks for putting up with my emails.
Starting something new, in which plain English explanations
seem to be a thing of the past, has me aggravated more than I can say,
