Use the cloudflare Flexible SSL. Yours might be on Full or Full Strict

we dont support Full mode

i changed it but it still is not loading

Not likely, if you want Full encryption, you must install SSL certificate first, then add CloudFlare


clear your browser cache ctrl+f5

Setting Cloudflare SSL Full Mode requires a Valid SSL Certificate on your domain. You can get free SSL Certs for your domain using the SSL Tool.

If you don’t want the fuss of that, then set Cloudflare to Flexible which means you don’t need an SSL Cert on your domain.


my site wont work with https now sent an invalid response. i think it may be something with my nameservers now as when i was first setting up cloudflare it told me to remove epizy but i never did

but im not sure ebcause it was fine a minute ago

use epizy nameservers and add cloudflare from VPanel

i would but if i do that i cannot config my cloudflare through

Nameservers take 5 minutes to 72 hours to propagate


i want to be able to change my cloudflare settings with

if you want to use Cloudflares nameservers, you have to do it via an addon domain. If you change main domain’s nameservers, it will stop functioning

That doesn’t work

Alternative method:
Install a free SSL from GoGetSSL or Lets Encrypt, and activate both SSL from cloudflare and IF
that might work

don’t combine 2 nameservers.
