Cloudflare DNS + Godaddy Websites + Marketing

Hello everyone, I have a domain with Namecheap, the DNS servers for this domain point to Cloudflare. I have a website with GoDaddy using their website + marketing service. GoDaddy has instructed me to enter these 2 DNS records in Cloudflare so that my domain points to my website, A | mysitedomain | (godaddy ip) and CNAME | www | mysitedomain.

So far, everything works fine. The problem arises when I try to set both of my DNS records to ‘Proxied’ in Cloudflare. I can set the CNAME to ‘Proxied’ without any issues but as soon as I set the A record to ‘Proxied’, my website goes down. Do you have any idea why this is happening and whether it’s necessary to set the A record to ‘Proxied’ or not? Thank you so much.

PS. The error i got on my browser when i proxied my A is “too many redirection”.

Too many redirects is almost always caused by improper SSL settings.
Changing your SSL mode in Cloudflare from flexible to Full (strict) usually does the trick.
