SSL certificate question1


We have an EV SSL installed on our cPanel.

If we then change our nameservers to our website is using Cloudflare will visitors no longer be served by our EV SSL?


Hi @twilson,

If you use Cloudflare’s Universal SSL, yes the certificate that the visitor will see is DV, not your EV. You still need a cert on your server to secure the second part of the connection, but this being EV doesn’t make a difference.

If you want to use Cloudflare and still serve an EV cert then you will need a Business plan and to upload a custom certificate.

Now the visual indicators in many popular browsers have moved and EV just looks like DV to most people, I personally don’t see much benefit!

Hi @domjh,

Thanks for the quick reply!

Agreed the EV is no longer a big deal, we’re not renewing it when it expires :slight_smile:.
