Total TLS

Total TLS allows Cloudflare to issue individual certificates for every proxied hostname. These certificates will protect proxied hostnames not covered by Universal certificates.

When issued, these certificates will have a type of Advanced - Total TLS.

When you enable Total TLS, Cloudflare will also show a warning on proxied DNS records that are not covered by a TLS certificate.

​​ Availability

Total TLS is available for domains that have purchased Advanced Certificate Manager and are currently using a full DNS setup.
