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?
my website is www.kpsounds.tk
Thanks.

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
Regards.

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


#5

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


#6

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

Hi @kellyug!

Thank you for using Cloudflare’s NSs instead of 000webhost ones. I have just pointed the domain to 000webhost for you.

Now, to enable Cloudflare protection, please go to Cloudflare cPanel > DNS and enable all orange clouds beside CNAME records.


PS: please make sure you have a CNAME record in Cloudflare cPanel > DNS which points www to scansorial-strip.000webhostapp.com. If you don’t have, please create one:

www -> scansorial-strip.000webhostapp.com

Ok thanks so much Teodor i have done all the required and also have www as an alliance of scansorial-strip.000webhostapp.com

Cloudflare protection does not appear to be enabled for your site. Please make sure the orange clouds are turned on (please post a screenshot from Cloudflare cPanel > DNS)
