Hi @kashifali11,

Your site is behind the CloudFlare CDN. Are you expecting to keep in that way in the long term?


Is this spam? If so, it’s really good.


I want to install let’s encrypt in


It may be difficult to install a Let’s Encrypt certificate while your site is behind CloudFlare. Even if you succeed, the general public still won’t see your certificate because CloudFlare will continue to serve its own certificate (unless you get a paid CloudFlare plan that allows you to use your own certificates on the CDN server).

If you still want to try, our Certbot instructions for Ubuntu 16.04 and nginx are found at
