Always Use HTTPS

Always Use HTTPS redirects all http requests to https for all subdomains and hosts in your application.

Cloudflare recommends not performing redirects at your origin web server, as this can cause redirect loop errors.

Encrypt all visitor traffic

To redirect traffic for all subdomains and hosts in your application:

  1. Log in to your Cloudflare account and go to a specific domain.
  2. Navigate to SSL/TLS > Edge Certificates.
  3. For Always Use HTTPS, switch the toggle to On.

Encrypt some visitor traffic

If you only want specific subdomains redirected to HTTPS, redirect on a URL basis using Cloudflare Bulk Redirects .

For example, you could forward traffic from a specific subdomain to HTTPS. You would likely want to include Subpath matching and Preserve path suffix to ensure requests to go to

Forcing HTTPS does not resolve issues with mixed content, as browsers check the protocol of included resources before making a request. You will need to use only relative links or HTTPS links on pages that you force to HTTPS. Cloudflare can automatically resolve some mixed-content links using our Automatic HTTPS Rewrites functionality.
