https for custom domains#5

Currently custom domains are not secure. Which isn’t good.

But I just discoverd a pretty cool way to activate https using Cloudflare. I’ll be posting instructions soon.

I have to test and write up official instructions. But in the mean time here are the basic steps:

  1. Set up an account with Cloudflare. Free tier works fine.
  2. Add a site on Cloudflare. (this is your domain/subdomain).
  3. Turn on Always Use HTTPS and/or create a Page Rule which adds SSL Full for the domain.
  4. Change your host’s nameservers to Cloudflare’s.

I’ve been looking for a way to get https on custom domains for years and only came across this one when I signed up for Nolt - the very message board we’re using right now. They have some detailed instructions if you’re interested.

Alex, thanks for your quick reply, I followed your instructions but now my main website is still on http and all subdomains don’t work. Any clue?

@Dom Changing nameservers can take a while to propogate around the world. Use a tool like this to make sure your domain is pointing to CloudFlare: https://mxtoolbox.com/dnscheck.aspx

@Alex thanks for replying, I am in doubt, the link should be my main domain or the sub domain used on composerly?

@Dom Shoot me an email at support@composerly.com. We’ll work out the details and then post the results here.
