  2. Click Zones.

  3. Click View Pull Zones.


  4. Click Manage next the Pull Zone you wish to change.


  5. Click the SSL tab.


  6. Click the Shared SSL.


  7. Click the Enable button and your shared SSL is now active.

    I’ve got under https . I’m trying to have cloud flare and maxcdn using shared ssl. At the moment it’s looking a bit weird. Is there a step by step guide to all 3 working together. I set up a custom name ( – and the cname in cloudflare pointing at the shared ssl cdn .

    Hello Alex,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Lets us start with the cname. The one that you have pointing towards your shared ssl url can not work as shared ssl urls can be only used in the form that we generate them. But the cname can be pointed towards your regular CDN url. Also please note that then for the cname that you have you would also need to have a certificate that would cover
    The certificate that you would need to have would be either a wildcard certificate or a multidomain one. Then the same certificate would need to be then uploaded under SNI in your SSL section.

    Here is the corresponding tutorial how that can be done:

    Also if you want you can always come to our live chat where we would live go over the setup itself.

    Kind regards!

  • Hi, i’ve https on my site and i’ve been using MaxCDN for more than a year, now the site doesn’t work properly after SSL install, so how to set up properly, there is no proper guide available in your site as well.

    After i enable SSL, i get something like this : *******-******* so where should i use this URL ?
