    Could you please expand a bit more on what you mean with this? When is it recommended to use Cloudflare Origin SSL and when to use Letsencrypt SSL?

    Ok, but you said that I could run into problems with Origin so maybe Letsencrypt was better. What I didnt understand was when you recommend Origin and when Letsencrypt?

    if you do any connections directly with Centmin Mod Nginx origin bypassing Cloudflare, you'd want Letsencrypt on Centmin Mod Nginx + Letsencrypt, otherwise Cloudflare origin ssl certs are fine.

    Ok, so you recommend Cloudflare origin ssl certs + Auth Origin pulls instead of letsencrypt in most cases?

    either cloudflare origin ssl certs or letsencrypt + authenticated origin pulls

    both types of certs do same thing just letsencrypt is web browser trusted if you need to bypass cloudflare and directly access centmin mod nginx origin
