Tag Archives: Status Page

Cloudflare is an impressive service/platform for securing and speeding-up websites.

If¬†you use Cloudflare¬†and have a “status page with a custom-domain” in Uptime Robot, “there may be a small configuration needed” to make sure things work smooth.

Who needs the custom configuration?

If the 3 items below match your case, then the custom config is needed:

  1. Use Cloudflare as your domain’s DNS provider
  2. Have a status page with custom domain in Uptime Robot
  3. Have the “Crypto” setting as “Flexible” in Cloudflare

How to make the custom config?

That is so easy:

  1. Login to your Cloudflare account
  2. Click the domain of your status page
  3. Click “Page Rules>Create Page Rule”
  4. Enter *MyStatusPageCustomDomain* (like *status.mydomain.com*) into “If the URL matches” field
  5. Click “Add Setting>SSL>Full”
  6. Click “Save and Deploy”
  7. That’s it.

And, here is a screenshot of the setting:
