403 Forbidden Error on site

I’m getting a 403 forbidden error when trying to forward my domain.

Can you provide a screenshot of what you are seeing?

This is what I am seeing. Thanks.

This looks like an error being returned from your origin server, as it does not contain Cloudflare branding.

Cloudflare does not generate any 4xx errors, so this would indicate something is not configured correctly with your hosting provider or your client is sending something incorrect. When this happens, in your browser you’ll see the message “Error 403: Forbidden”. If you’ve recently upgraded from a Free account to a Pro subscription; the 403 error may be a temporary error related to an issue while replacing the certificate from the Free account with a certificate for the Pro account. If not:

  • Try using a different browser, or use a private/incognito window. Your DNS cache may be pointing to the origin server.
  • If you’re only seeing the error from certain countries. Check the origin server configuration for a country block.
