SSL Confusion

#1

Hello, I have my hosting and domain with heart internet and I have cloudflare on the site. I have purchased an SSL from heart internet but there are errors that seem to do with confusion between cloudflare security and this. Is there already an SSL certificate on my cloudflare account? or what’s the best way to move forward so that my website is secure? Thank you, Lisa

Hi,

I am not 100% sure I quite understand what you are asking, what errors do you receive?

The SSL certificate from Cloudflare encrypts the connection between the visitor and Cloudflare, but you do need an SSL certificate on Heart Internet as well to encrypt the connection between Cloudflare and your server.

You should set your SSL mode in Cloudflare to Full (strict) if you have a valid certificate from Heart. You can find this setting in the crypto tab of your Cloudflare dashboard.
