How To Upload Custom SSL/TLS Certificate

SWA Professional enabled domains may upload custom SSL/TLS certificate to the Cloudflare® edge servers. Types of custom TLS certificate that may be uploaded are:

  • DV, OV, or EV TLS Certificate

  • Wildcard TLS Certificate (*.example.com)

  • Multi-domain or SAN TLS certificate (my.example.com, myotherexmaple.com)


Custom SSL/TLS provides several benefits:

  • They are not shared by multiple customer domains.
  • You can serve valid, existing origin SSL/TLS certificates (like OV and EV) from the Cloudflare network.
  • When a user checks the SSL/TLS Certificate it will show your company information instead of the Cloudflare company information.
  • Convey trust to customers (this is particularly important for Banks, Insurance, and E-commerce websites).

To upload a “Custome SSL/TLS”, please refer to the Cloudflare detail knowledge base article.

Cloudflare does not permit uploading self-signed TLS certificates or certificates that expire within 14 days.
