Hi there!

I signed up to Cloudflare and I need to change the DNS of my website (www.quality4-u.com). First, I would like to know if you recommend using Cloudflare with a Homestead website, if so:


There were these instructions:

1/ Login to your registrar (where you purchased quality4-u.com).


2/ In order for quality4-u.com to start receving all the speed and

security benefits of Cloudflare, change your nameservers


..and I need to change them to:

jack.ns.cloudflare.com
serena.ns.cloudflare.com

Could you please do this for me, if you think it could benefit the site?

Regards,
Daniel

Hello,

If you are trying to secure your site, Cloudflare is what we recommend:

https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/can-i-secure-my-homestead-website-with-https

I have updated your nameservers for you.

One more thing! My stats stopped showing visitors to my website 2 days ago. Does it have to do anything with https (Cloudflare) or is it an issue with Homestead?

Hello,

If you are using the stats available through Homestead, that tool is not compatible with a secure site. I would recommend using a tool like Google Analytics to track the stats on your site.

Well, a new task for you! Make it compatible, btw. I already use alternative tools!

The tool through Homestead for SB+ sites cannot be made compatible, I would recommend you stick with the 3rd party tools, or you can rebuild you site through our newer builder, Website Builder, which has an auto-SSL and stats that work with a secure site.

It started showing results ... it is not as accurate as my other third party tool! (Less page loads in Homestead Statistics). Good job so far!
