SSL Domains on Pixels.com

If a premium member on pixels.com, you have the opportunity to use your own domain pointing to your shop

However, if you just point it then you will not see a lock and you may get a warning that the site is not secure. Here is a workaround.

To create a secure site on our own domain when pointing to a premium site using custom domains

First of all create a new free account on https://cloudflare.com

———-*****———-

Click Add site

It will say

We’re querying your DNS records

Press Next

Click on the FREE plan

Then, Confirm Plan

A popup will ask if you are sure.

Confirm

You are taken to a page of details about your site. You need to change the A and CNAME areas

———-*****———-

First create new ones

A: Yourname.com 216.185.148.181 Automatic
CNAME:  www custom.artistwebsites.com Automatic

Use your own domain where mine is, obviously

When you have added those two, delete the other A and CNAME fields that were there previously

———-*****———-

Log into your domain host

Under DNS go to NAMESERVERS and change the nameservers to the ones they show you on CloudFlares DNS page

That may be different for different people

Now all you have to do is enable your free SSL on Cloudflare

———-*****———-

Go to your new site on Cloudflare (under Account Home)

Then go to the SSL/TLS settings

Make sure it is on FULL

See the tab EDGE CERTIFICATES

Always Use HTTPS ON
Minimum TLS Version TLS 1.2
Opportunistic Encryption ON
Onion Routing ON
TLS 1.3 Enabled
Automatic HTTPS Rewrites On
Certificate Transparency Monitoring Disabled

———-*****———-

Log into your premium site on pixels.com and go to CUSTOM DOMAINS and add your domain

Mine is added like this

abbie-shores.com

do not add www or https://

This now can take up to 72 hours to populate but, to be honest, I have never known it even take an hour

Once it has, you can go to your domain using https:// in the address…. like mine is https://abbie-shores.com and you are now at a secure server showing your premium site

———-*****———-
