Subdomain cloudflare SSL

How can i add SSL on a subdomain using cloudflare’s nameservers ?

Hello there,

You could try asking the Cloudflare’s Community directly for help.

Also I do forgot to mention that you can’t add subdomains to Cloudflare, only primary TLD domains are allowed (e.g.,, but you can add your main domain to cloudflare and this includes the subdomain of your main domain.

First you need to add your web site domain name
At cloudflare, then go to ssl in navbar
You will notice
no encryption
Full but require trus…

Chose full not full but…

Then add page rule always redirect to https

Then add cloudflare server name to your domain
Wait 10 min
That it you got your free ssl

Another point to note: you can only use subdomains when using Cloudflare’s nameservers. Our Cloudflare integration breaks all subdomains.

And when you are using Cloudflare’s nameservers, please make sure you’ve also added a DNS record to point the subdomain to your website IP address, and that this subdomain has the orange cloud enabled.


“Then add cloudflare server name to your domain” what do you mean ?

Server name of cloudflare to your damain

Change the nameservers of your domain name to point to the nameservers provided by Cloudflare.
