How does the Free SSL Certificate work?

For all customers, we will now automatically provision an SSL certificate on CloudFlare's network that will accept HTTPS connections for your hosting. The certificate includes an entry for the root domain (e.g., as well as a wildcard entry for all first-level subdomains (e.g.,,, etc.).

The free SSL certificate from Cloudflare defaults to a Flexible SSL mode, which means traffic from browsers to CloudFlare will be encrypted, but traffic from CloudFlare to your Cloud Next hosting will not be. We strongly recommend a paid certificate on your site so traffic is fully encrypted end to end.
