Hello BHW,

Recently I added Cloudflare to one of my blogger custom domains. The settings are given below:

On blogger:

On Cloudflare:

Chrome browser ssl check

I see no issues with my site at this moment. The http, https, www and non-www versions are correctly pointing to preferred setup from different devices and browsers (also with Tor).

I would like to know whether the configuration is correct.Should I go on with Full SSL mode? If Yes, please provide the knowledge on this part.

Can someone who is familiar with this can help me on this?

Thanks in advance.

Full setup require you to have your own SSL certificate, you can pay for this or generate one free from let's encrypt. However if security is not your main concern, flexible is plenty if you deem cloudflare is trustworthy enough to read your plain text traffic

On my server I use letsencrypt. Therefore I use Full (strict).
If you use flexible, your server to CF not use HTTPS.

I prefer an end to end encryption.

If you enable https redirect then you will need Full on cloudflare or it will show you error.
