# CloudFlare and HTTPS

On September 11, 2013, MyWikis tech took the hard decision to disable CloudFlare in exchange for a HTTPS website. Now, websites will be given three choices.

## Why?

CloudFlare charges for their Pro services, which allow HTTPS. We believe this is unfair and tyrannical. HTTPS should be put in EVERY website; not including it would risk consumers of their safety.

### Hey... this HTTPS is giving me errors!

Until we can allocate some money on our budget to purchase a certificate, the warning will appear. However, this warning is only there because there is a lack of a certificate! Everything else is really secure! You can also avoid this problem by buying a certificate for $20! ==UNIQ--h-2--QINU Options == ===UNIQ--h-3--QINU Option 1: CloudFlare only === * Your wiki would have CloudFlare CDN benefits * Your wiki would lose HTTPS privileges and risk users' passwords being stolen ===UNIQ--h-4--QINU Option 2: HTTPS only === * Your wiki would lose CloudFlare CDN benefits and have slower speeds * Your wiki would have HTTPS privileges but without a certificate ====UNIQ--h-5--QINU Option 2+: Buy HTTPS ''certificate'' to omit any errors ==== * Same as option 2 except costs$15/year and adds trusted certificate.

### Option 3: CloudFlare AND HTTPS

• Your wiki would have CloudFlare CDN benefits
• Your wiki would have HTTPS privileges but without a certificate
• Your wiki would be required to pay $12/month ====UNIQ--h-7--QINU Option 3+: Buy both CloudFlare AND HTTPS ''certificate'' to omit any errors ==== * Same as option 3 except costs$15/year more and adds trusted certificate.
