How do you SSL a website on Homestead?

Can you get a SSL certificate through Homestead for a Website hosted by them?  Network Solutions is asking Homestead to generate a CSR for my website so a SSL can be issued through them.  Not having direct access to Homestead Customer Support is a huge drawback to having a website here.

@russell5607​ Thanks Russell, have a few questions before I proceed.  I have my .com registered through network solutions with forwarding to my Homestead website.  They want a CSR issued by Homestead so they can issue the SSL, is this possible?  Also, If I gain the SSL through Cloudflare will it work with the Network Solution forwarding?

No, we cannot issue a CSR. It would need to be through Cloudflare and no, having it registered through another company is not an issue as long as the domain is pointing to Homestead via nameservers or DNS.

Thank you for the speedy replies.  Will try the Cloudflare, wish me luck.  Also, went to Homesteads new website builder that automatically gives you the SSL and found most of the templates are showing a 404 error and not available.

@elyzabethv​ You're Golden.  Everything is done through Cloudflare and up and working.  Involving Network Solutions only added another layer of difficulty...my mistake.  Eliminated their process and went straight through Cloudflare and everything went smooth.  Thanks for everything, I owe you lunch.
