  1. I added cloud flare server names to my Google Domain DNS and did everything as you explained but even after 1 day the website is still not secure. Any suggestion?

  2. Really awesome guide! I used it on a registrar that only allowed A records for the domain name, which I was linking to a Heroku site that normally only works with DNS that has CNAME or ALIAS capabilities. This solution here worked like a charm, now the website has SSL and DDoS protection!

  3. I have 2 questions:

    1) When creating the bucket, you must necessarily add the www?
    2) Everything worked fine for me, but when entering my page without the www this does not work. How could this be solved without adding a rule in cloudflare that redirects to the page with www? I need the page to always be without www

  4. Thanks! I have a problem, when I enter to the website without "www." it doesnt connect. I think that its can fix in DNS config, but I dont know how.

  5. i cant use Full

    Encrypts end-to-end, using a self signed certificate on the server , I but I can use Flexible

    Encrypts traffic between the browser and Cloudflare , how can I do full ? thanks

  6. good video due I try to do this using my domain from hostinger but I can't find custom resource records anywhere… pls how do i go about it on hostinger?

  7. Hello.. there is a 501 error every time whenever i am using cloudflare with google google cloud… please help me to solve this

    I am using wordpress here

  8. So, it looks like there is at least one step missing here if you don't host your domain name with the small list of registrars in the select menu shown in the video. Anyone know if it's possible to do this if you have your domain name hosted at namecheap? It looks like maybe you need to create a second cname record somehow.

  9. For this to work, is it required that you named your bucket the same as your domain name. It looks like you have to do some stuff at your domain registrar like at a text record. Does that serve two purposes, to verify that you own the domain nameand also to make the SSL certificate work? Or is it only required to name your bucket the same as your domain name.

  10. Hi! Can you make a video abouts SSL certificate using the same Google Cloud Platform? I'm having trouble with that 🙁 I know it makes no difference but did you experience any issues too?

  11. thanks for this video! i do have some questions. is it possible to upload a dynamic website? i have a website that is in heroku, i built it with node, and express. how do i migrate them to storage bucket? thanks in advance for you answer!

  12. thanks for the video, great work! one question: is it possible with google cloud to fine-adjust the access to my static files? lets say i have got a "login.html" and a "content.html". I want that everybody can visit the "login.html" but only authenticated users can visit the "content.html". Is that possible at all with GC?. Thanks in advance!
