Flywheel’s Simple SSL through Let’s Encrypt™ is a great way to cover the primary domain on a site with a free SSL certificate! However, one limitation of Simple SSL is that it can’t cover any secondary domains.
This can be an issue if you have a secondary domain that redirects to the primary domain, since users who try to connect to a secondary domain using HTTPS will see a security error instead of being redirected properly. That’s no good for anyone.
Just follow our guide to getting set up with Cloudflare on Flywheel for your secondary domain.
Once the domain is successfully routing through Cloudflare, you can enable Flexible SSL from the Crypto tab of the site’s Cloudflare dashboard (if it’s not already active). That will allow HTTPS connections on the secondary domain, which will then successfully redirect to the primary domain of your Flywheel site!
