Recently I was changing my DNS to Cloudflare.
My site was down.
Here is the process I did while changing it.
- Signup to Cloudflare.
- Changed the NameServer given by Cloudflare.
- Uninstall SSL in HostGator.
- Used Cloudflare Plugin.
- Install SSL from Cloudflare.
But my site was down for a whole day. I thought this was due to DNS Propagation.
Later on, I chatted with HG Support Staff and they again installed SSL from their end.
So my question is that is it good to use SSL at both ends?
Do I need to keep SSL in Hostgator while changing DNS so that my site won’t be down for longer time?
