I have three attachments of screen shots of my Cloudflare account but don't see where to attach them. Done all I can to troubleshoot why my site is still not secure so need some help. Thanks!.........Candy

Hi Candy,

When you are commenting, you should see icons below the text box. One will look like a camera. If you click on this, it will give you the option to upload those images.

Are there other screenshots? I believe there should be more DNS for me to check. One thing I do see though, the cloud next to the www CNAME needs to be turned on (orange) as well as the A record for your domain. If you can, please post the rest of the DNS page.

Attached 6 files.  Question about the A-AAA-CNAME-MX - its says selecting these will be exposing your origin IP address.  What exactly does that mean and is it what I want?  Thanks Elyzabeth!

Ok, I typed https://www.joshtaxidermy is now showing secure.  So...if I enter www.joshstaxidermy.com it is not secure.  What's the deal on that?  Thanks!

This just means you are ready to finish the last two steps of the instructions.


12) Click on the Crypto button at the top.


13) In the top section you should now see the status as Active Certificate. On the right side of that section, make sure it shows flexible. You now need to tell all http requests to forward to https. Scroll to the middle of this long page and look for the section entitled "Always use HTTPS" Turn it on. Also scroll to the bottom and find "Automatic HTTPS Rewrites" Turn it on
