#StackBounty: #ssl #https #lets-encrypt #cloudflare Terminating SSL at Cloudflare level. Do I get performance gains?

Bounty: 50

I saw in a post that terminating SSL at Cloudflare level and HTTP only traffic from Cloudflare to origin gives a performance boost since SSL is negotiated only at the edge.

I run a website (mostly static) where security is not a paranoid concern.

Is it worth shutting off my letsencrypt certificate to use Cloudflare provided “flexible certificate” to avoid expensive roundtrips between the edge and the origin?
