Ok so I am going to try to make this concise because I’m afraid I’ll get lost otherwise. I am not new to building/creating my own stuff for our business, but it is not my super power. I enjoy it about as much as I enjoy cleaning the bathroom… as in it needs to get done but dang LOL.
I moved to Builderall a year ago and they handled all the SSL stuff in that move but my Google Suite email was a mess for like a month. Still trying to figure out if that is my user error or what.
Leaving Builderall because they can’t deliver what I need and I have rebuilt my course in Kajabi. They said I needed to come here to get my SSL. So now the questions…
What I change my nameservers there will be a bit of a delay as it all populates right? In that time it should still point to my old site CORRECT? Asking because I have ads pointing there and I want things to feel seamless.
Do I have to do something with Google Suit email when I move things?
I want to set up a subdomain for a store we have in Big Commerce so it still all has our main URL. What if anything do I need to do different with setting that up?
The first thing is to add the domain and make sure that all the DNS records match your current ones, including your MX records.
Switch all records to and change the nameservers to Cloudflare. This will not enable any of Cloudflare’s services yet, so as long as the DNS records are correct, there should be no downtime.
Once the nameservers have changed, check the SSL/TLS app for your certificate status, it can take 24hrs to issue - once it says ‘Active certificate’, then you can set the records that can be to , as in the tutorial.
Also make sure that you have an SSL certificate on your server and set your SSL mode in Cloudflare to Full (strict) if you want to use HTTPS.
