Home Forums Random SSL/TLS Setting Recommendation Reply To: SSL/TLS Setting Recommendation


I'm pretty sure this is simply an "upsell" attempt. The term "FULL" over within Cloudflare's SSL modes doesn't mean 'beyond capacity', but an identifying method of the different modes (Flexible / Full / Strict / Off). And each of those dictates how Cloudflare treats incoming URL requests (ie turning HTTP into HTTPS or rejecting anything not HTTPS or a variation.

The push to go "Strict" is a way for them to sell you a standalone SSL certificate.

Now... its also possible (small chance) that your previous SSL certificate has expired and the "Full" SSL Mode actually doesn't verify if the used certificate is valid or expired.
