hey,

just wanted to check to do you have any update on ’ How to painlessly transfer your domain from http-https?
I’m interested in free certificate’s as Cloud Flare. I’m using Wordpress as a CMS for the website.

Do you have any best practices on adding certificate and transfering from http to https?
I’m not hard-core website builder; so some ‘step by step’ guide would be ideal for me.

Thank’s

In this tutorial you will secure your website served by Nginx with an Origin CA certificate from Cloudflare and configure Nginx to use authenticated pull requests. The advantages of using this setup are that you benefit from Cloudflare's CDN and fast DNS resolution while ensuring that all connections pass through Cloudflare. This prevents any malicious requests from reaching your server.
