  • The only real way to do this right now, if your intention is to have your SSL certificate show, is to move your SSL to a subdomain & then add the subdomain to CloudFlare as something we don’t proxy.

    We might have a solution for users to use their own certificates in the future. Is there a reason you don’t want CloudFlare to also proxy the SSL portions of your site, besides the issue with the cert name showing?

    Thanks for responding, Damon,

    We have a dedicated, private certificate, correctly installed and activated in Plesk (confirmed by GeoTrust), established on an exclusive IP address.

    It is important for us to show our own certificate for a number of reasons. One of them being the trust worthiness. Another would be the way it influences our ranking in relation to our competitors.

    Using a subdomain would not work for the certificate we purchased.

    Any ideas?

    Ping cloudflare guys…


    The only way to really show your own SSL would be to upload your own SSL to CloudFlare. This does, however, require a Business Level account (200.00 month) to display your cert:( The only other workaround is the subdomain option mentioned.
