Using own ssl certificate by only use cloudflare DNS server feature


#1

Can i use own ssl cerificate, only by using cloudflare’s DNS server/not CDN, with subscription type free website, or I have to keep using NS other than Cloudflare


#2

I don’t remember where I read it… but yes you can use Cloudflare for just DNS hosting. Just make sure the cloud icon is set to :grey: to prevent traffic from being proxied.

yes i know, i want use own SSL certificate without pro/business plan


#5

If you want to use Cloudflare DNS only, you can use whatever cert you want. If you want to use their CDN you need to pay to provide your own cert.

I have purchased SSL from digicert, can I still use cloudflare NS, and use my own SSL certificate, or release the NS cloudflare for use own SSL Certificate

This is one of the domains I use to test cloudflare stuff: https://status.sixcorners.app/
You can see the cert that is being used is from let’s encrypt (for now anyway). I’m not paying a dime to cloudflare for this domain.
Cloudflare uses comodo, digicert, and globalsign so the let’s encrypt cert is like a custom cert. As long as you set the config in cloudflare to :grey: and don’t use their CDN your cert will work fine.

whether https://status.sixcorners.app/ uses Cloudflare NS?


#9
