Enabling SSL on Your Domain

About SSL
A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a security protocol that encrypts and privatizes all traffic between a web browser and a web server. Having SSL enabled is highly recommend when transmitting any private information and even has a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) benefit when enabled on all pages.  
Domains that use Sav's free Custom DNS, powered by Cloudflare, can enable SSL with just a few mouse clicks. 

  1. Enable Custom DNS on your Domain and navigate to the DNS Settings Page.
  2. Ensure Each A, AAAA and CNAME record type have "Proxy" enabled. This will route all web traffic through the Cloudflare Proxy Server which applies the SSL Certificate automatically requiring no custom web server configuration on your end.
  3. Within the Domain Settings side bar, click the Enable button under SSL.

The SSL Certificate used by the Proxy will be issued by Cloudflare's Certificate Authority
Using this method for SSL may interfere with third party website builders like Squarespace and is not recommend when you use one.
