Premium hosting for Cloud hosting

27 September 2018 - 06:36 AM

I've been on premium hosting for many years, and have noticed that the details on this package are not longer there.. I can only see Cloud hosting (although premium is still shown on this forum).

 

To compare, is there an equivalent Cloud "n" to my premium hosting?


Using cloudflare to resolve mixed content for https

19 January 2018 - 08:09 PM

I posed this question in support, got frustrated with the lack of knowledge or help, so I though I'd post here. Here is what transpired in my support ticket:

 

Me:

I'm considering changing my forum, at http://ooakforum.com, to all https. It seems to already resolve with https, but it has a lot of mixed content, which will take too much effort to change manually (thousands of posts).

I'm told that cloudflare would enables me to re-write http to https (Under the 'Crypto' tab, Automatic HTTPS Rewrites), to resolve the mixed content issue.

If I wished to have my whole site running via https, would cloudflare be a viable solution?

Would I need to purchase membership for this, or is this already supported via my hosting package? Do I need anything else?

 

Support:

I would like to inform you that you can redirect the URL of your website to https using an htaccess rule.

However in case that the links are hardcoded with https you would need to change them in order to load them using a secure connection.

As it comes to cloudflare it will actually add the same redirect rules as you would do in your htaccess.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

 

Me: 

Yes I'm aware I can redirect to https in .htacess, but I'm referring to hard-coded http.

According to this article on the cloudflare website, the cloudflare works quite different, and CAN rewrite the hardcoded http:

Support:

This will need to be completed by your webmaster if it requires changes to your content.

Thank you

 

:angry:  :angry:  :angry: Did they even read the whole question? While I appreciate this may not be part of their job, and I'm a bit of a noob, I thought they could have been a little more helpful!

 

Anyway, with my winge out of the way, can anyone give me some tips with this?

 

Thanks guys!
