How to keep custom domain's url (via Cloudflare)?


#1

Hi there,

I followed the instructions of the other topic to use Cloudflare: How To Use Cloudflare For SSL - it works well, with only one issue: when my site opens, the original custom domain (https://otapigems.com) changes on the brower’s url bar to the https://otapigems.000webhostapp.com/.
How could keep the custom domain adress in the url?

Thank you
PS: also thanx for your great hosting service! :slight_smile:

Well, if I changed the WordPress website address and URL to my domain (https://otapigems.com), then the site went into an infinitive loop of redirection and it was down (I changed back the settings already to get back it alive).

I just resolved this issue by installing the WP plugin ‘CloudFlare Flexible SSL’.
So:

  • Followed the steps of How To Use Cloudflare For SSL
  • Installed and activated the WP Plugin ‘CloudFlare Flexible SSL’. I haven’t done any search and replace for http to https or whatsover, just activated the plugin
  • Changed both WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) to ‘https://otapigems.com

That’s it. No more redirection loop, and the url stays as my custom domain and the connection is SSL.
