Before starting, we advise you to familiarize yourself with the article about CloudFlare on our blog .
1. Log in to the CloudFlare control panel (abbreviated CF) ? dash.cloudflare.com
2. Go to the SSL/TLS ? Overview section, where you can choose one of the proposed encryption modes that will meet the needs of your site — Off , Flexible , Full or Full Strict .
In most cases, for the correct operation of the site, you need to set the encryption mode:
Full mode — if the site uses an SSL certificate
Flexible mode — if the site does not use an SSL certificate .
Off - traffic encryption is not applied (not recommended).
Flexible - traffic encryption is only applied between the browser and CF, traffic between CF and the hosting server is not encrypted (not recommended)
Full Strict — end-to-end encryption of traffic is used, therefore requires installation of an SSL certificate from CF on the hosting (recommended for advanced users)
