Setup Hostgator hosting with Godaddy Domain on Cloudflare

Hello Guys,
Can you guide me how to setup Hosgator Hosting with Domain purchased from godaddy to use Cloudflare setup?
What actually I want to obtain :

  1. Host site on hostgator
  2. Domain is purchased from godaddy ( I already added cloudflare nameserver in godaddy dns settings)
  3. Setup cloudflare for ssl and Ddos Attach preventions and better speed for that domain.

Error I am getting after setting up those things :
My site’s home page is loading but not the backend, its constantly showing error : This page isn’t working

hridaykitchenware.com/wp-admin redirected you too many times.

I setup A record in cloudflare which points to hostagtor IP but its just helpful for my site’s home page but its not able to let me access backend pages as you see in above error.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for reading and giving me your valuable time:)

Was your site using HTTPS before you added it to Cloudflare?

Nope, I do not have SSL on my hostgator. I just want to use cloudflare SSL that’s why I installed wordpress by default with https://

You need SSL at the host. That’s what takes to create a secure connection.

But if I need SSL at host than how can I use SSL from cloudflare? Bit confused. I can do one thing I can reinstall site without https and try it again as I already enabled SSL in cloudflare settings. Please let me know if this is right way to fix this issue.

You need SSL at both ends for a secure connection. Your end at the host needs SSL, and Cloudflare will take care of SSL at the visitor’s end.
