    Kind x10 Hosting Administrators,

    I have a free hosting account and I'm trying to set up a secure connection, so since I've read in this thread:

    https://x10hosting.com/community/threads/shared-ssl.96762/

    that it does exist a shared SSL certificate I was searching for the method to let it work on my domain until I read this other thread:

    https://x10hosting.com/community/threads/https-access.203584/

    from which it seems it's impossible at the moment for the free-hosting servers to "work with SSL or TSL or SNI (regardless of IP shared or dedicated or what cPanel shows)", therefore I'm very confused now, because in the same thread it has been recommended to make use of CloudFlare to act as a proxy front-end to the free site, but I couldn't manage to find the link to enable the CloudFlare from the cPanel I can access to as a free user: can you explain exactly how all this matter is working on the x10 free hosting?

    Thank You All in Advance.

    Sure I did: the link to the tutorial you are referring to was inside the second thread I cited!

    The answer I was searching for is that the link to enable CloudFlare is only available from the cPanel x3 theme that is not the one selected by default in the free user account, therefore in order to see the link to enable CloudFlare mentioned in the tutorial I had to switch the cPanel theme from 'x10 Basic' to 'cPanel x3'....

    Thank You The Same.
