Homestead site has outgoing links to items in my bigcommerce shop. I've followed the cloudfare instructions to change the name servers in the homestead part but then all of my bigcommerce links are 404. I need both to be secure.

Hey Danni2136

I did respond to the question you posted in the main HTTPS article, but that has a LOT of comments so it is possible that was difficult to find. I would recommend settings your BigCommerce store SSL through BigCommerce.

Hi again. So I've add the stores cname and turned the cloud off, so far all the outgoing links are working. I'm assuming it takes some time for my site to show to https in the address bar. There is an option under "crypto" for: "Always use HTTPSRedirect all requests with scheme “http” to “https”. This applies to all http requests to the zone." It is off, is this something I need to turn on for my site? It still shows as not secure.

You will turn those two options on when you are able to go to https://(yourdomain) and it comes up. Once it loads when you go to the https version, you can turn those settings on and it will do it automatically.

Hello. So it was not showing as secure until I turned on that option. Now both my store and main site are secure. Thank you for the help. Now, my last issue is my mobile site (through duda as suggested by homestead) there is no way to secure the mobile site through them, do you have any suggestions? Can I add it through cloudflare somehow?

The cname for the mobile store is in cloudflare under DNS, but the cloud is gray and says DNS only when I however over it. Will turning on the cloud do the trick?

Unfortunately, we can't guarantee DudaMobile sites will work with Cloudflare. You can certainly test whether that works for your mobile site tonight, if you want to wait until there is less traffic.
