After you set up your Cloudflare protection at Hostinger, you'll be able to manage basic Cloudflare settings through hPanel: just open HostingManageCloudflare:

If your domain is already pointed to Cloudflare, in hPanel you will be able to perform these actions:

  1. Button to Enable or Disable Cloudflare. It’s highly recommended to keep it ON all the time. However, if Cloudflare is having maintenance, and your website is having accessibility issues, disabling Cloudflare will bring it back online. You can also disable Cloudflare directly in the Cloudflare Dashboard

  2. SSL / Encrypt communication - here you can adjust your SSL Encryption settings

  3. Security level - this parameter determines which visitors will receive a “Cloudflare is checking your browser” page. We recommend keeping it on Normal all the time and changing it to Under Attack only when you are under a DDoS attack

  4. Subdomains - subdomains management in hPanel is currently disabled. However, it's still possible to use Cloudflare with subdomains
