Why infinityfree does not support clouldflare origin certificate


Error Message
The certificate uploaded is NOT for the domain name ourcreativestore.com (CloudFlare Origin Certificate was seen) .


The documentation tells clearly why the Origin cert can’t be uploaded.


You have to use InfinityFree’s SSL if you would like to install an origin certificate.



Our SSL manager only accepts certificates signed by known SSL certificate providers. Cloudflare Origin Certificates are self signed certificates which are only trusted by Cloudflare, so they cannot be used.

The original reason for this filter was to prevent junk, invalid and self signed certificates from clogging up our servers. That’s less relevant now, but the filters remain.

If you want to use Cloudflare, you can just use Flexible SSL. If you want to use Full SSL, you can install an SSL certificate from a real SSL provider.

Yes I have used SSL provided by infinity free, but there is a problem my website ourcreativestore.com is not fully secured the error on sslshopper.com is
“The certificate is not trusted in all web browsers. You may need to install an Intermediate/chain certificate to link it to a trusted root certificate. Learn more about this error. The fastest way to fix this problem is to contact your SSL provider.”

Our panel doesn’t support CA chains, so this error cannot be fixed. Fortunately, most modern browsers will have no trouble opening your site.
