In my head it made complete sense to front this blog with the “Free” plan from Cloudflare
Wanted to accomplish 2 things from this exercise
- Able to use andrewheys.com as well as www.andrewheys.com
- Forward all HTTP traffic to HTTPS
Steps to Complete
First thing to do was to setup the CNAME records, the Azure Storage Static Site does not have an IP address so CNAME was the only option..
Setup up the redirect rule
Set up the Universal SSL option for now
Then ensure all HTTP traffic goes to HTTPS
All pretty straightforward once I’d been directed by Jake1st on the Cloudflare Community as to where to set up the 301.
Next thing to look at is the security between Cloudflare and the Azure Storage Static Site..
