Using Cloudflare with a Domain (or Subdomain)

Requires Pro Standard or higher

If you're using or planning to use Cloudflare as a reverse proxy for a site:

  1. Temporarily pause Cloudflare on the site's domain (or subdomain).

  2. Wait until the DNS records you added for the domain (or subdomain) have fully propagated and an SSL certificate has been successfully issued.

  3. Set Cloudflare's SSL to Full SSL (Strict) so you don't end up in a redirect loop.

  4. Unpause Cloudflare.

  5. You're done! The site should now be working through Cloudflare.
