If you have configured your website with SSL disabled, then here is a solution for you:

How to configure CloudFlare

What the different modes are for?


SSL Disabled: There is no secure connection between your visitor and CloudFlare and no secure connection between CloudFlare and your web server either.
Flexible SSL: There is a secure connection between your visitor and CloudFlare but no secure connection between CloudFlare and your web server.
Full SSL: There is a secure connection between your visitor and CloudFlare and a secure connection (but not authenticated) between CloudFlare and your web server.
Full SSL (Strict): There is a secure connection between the visitor and CloudFlare as well as a secure and authenticated connection between CloudFlare and your web server.
