Hello there,
Thanks for all you are doing.
Qn: I have a free music download website and am still using a free website plan and currently my website is ruining but some browser tend to block my website because its not secure. Am asking can i get a free ssl from 000webhost or cloudflare when am still using a free plan, and if Yes how?

Hi yes you can use cloudflare here. :slight_smile:
Read about how to setup it here and i recommend you to not use 000webhost for business purpose or as downloading site. Your account can be suspended anytime if your overuse them.
How To Use Cloudflare For SSL


Ok here is the issue now
I had tried that and followed that tutorial but when i reached at the stage where you have to wait for 24hours there its about a month now and the status is still pending,
I desided to ask this question because i had thought that maybe free plan cant add ssl.
What do you think could be wrong and how am i getting helped


That’s because your nameservers are pointing to 000webhost’s nameservers instead of CloudFlare’s ones :slight_smile:


So do i have to go to freenom and point the dns to cloudflare?
And won’t i loose my website data if i change to cloudflare


Nope, after you change your nameservers to CF ones, go to DNS tab and add the 2 CNAME records mentioned in the tutorial.


Follow this video tutorial by 000webhost


Thanks so much, i think the video tutorial is much better for beginners, Thumbs up

PS: please make sure you have a CNAME record in Cloudflare cPanel > DNS which points www to If you don’t have, please create one:
