Completely Bricked Site

Ouch! Maybe do consider switching hosts - that is very expensive. Lots of hosts include it on the standard package.

I can’t believe they won’t even let you install a 3rd party one!

Which error? The Too Many Redirects?

I see you have paused Cloudflare on the site and now get a protocol error. The site appears to still be redirecting to HTTPS but as you have no certificate on the server, can’t serve the page over HTTPS.

This is so insane…I told them I have my own certificate, and would like to install it. They said, they will only do it if I have hosting and domains through them. We confirmed that I do, he says, okay so then we have to charge you. Their loop is worse than the redirect loop.

He says my DNS is not pointing in the right spot. I confirmed it is.I have another site that uses Cloudflare set up the exact same way and is working. I feel like they are intent on getting money out of me.

@domjh How do I get rid of the redirect https?

In Cloudflare, this can be done in the SSL/TLS app, there is an Always Use HTTPS option that can be disabled.

This is one of the reasons GoDaddy is fairly cheap to start with, because they make you pay extra for every little thing!

Yep, thought so. That’s been off for a min…since @gbtota offered that advice.

Not one single lie told!

The HTTPS redirect does appear to come from your server rather than Cloudflare:

HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Date: Sat, 09 Feb 2019 22:08:39 GMT
Server: Apache
Cache-Control: max-age=2592000
Expires: Mon, 11 Mar 2019 22:08:39 GMT
Content-Length: 0
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8

Now it’s $118 for 5 SSL certificates instead of helping me remove this redirect and telling me how to do the CSR thing and uploading my own certs.

That is mad! They should definitely help you remove the redirect and get your site working over http at least.

Oh! You’ll find this especially delicious.

I apparently, I am on an older hosting panel, without cPanel. They can give that to me with the three options of me migrating my 12 years of files for ONE site, hiring a developer or paying them $99 per site to migrate them…and then I might be able to upload my own SSL.

They don’t do it for customers because they say that is a liability.

Oh wow… At this point I would be walking out :joy:

OMG… really!

Incidentally, the server redirect has now been removed and your site now loads over http.

As it is a WordPress site, you might be able to transfer it yourself easily, but it just depends!

Sorry I haven’t been able to be of more help @helloterricaskaggs, I just really don’t know what to say - GoDaddy seem to be going out of their way to be unhelpful and, other than changing hosts, have no other suggestions.

I hope you manage to sort this all out!

It looks like I’ve been missing out on all the fun. Some thoughts:

  1. If you’re dumping GoDaddy, how many sites to transfer?

  2. To migrate a WordPress site, I love WP All-in-One Migration. Their free version can import/export up to 512 Megs. For $69, that limit is lifted and applies to all your WordPress sites.

  3. Digital Ocean has One-Click Wordpress installations for $5/month that include SSL. You’ll need to get a bit more technical to dig into configurations on this via SSH (Command Line), but their documentation is pretty thorough. You can also piggyback other WordPress sites on this installation:

Or do you wish to keep trying with GoDaddy?

I run a wordpress site behind Cloudflare in flexible mode, I fixed the redirect loop with the wordpress Cloudflare plugin.

Also, please check if you can use letsencrypt. It’s free!

have similar issue wordpress blog type website,hosting gives free autorenew ssl from letsencrypt,but if i off Cloudflare ssl then site goes too endles redirect loop circle :smiley:

What is your SSL mode set to in Cloudflare? What is the domain?

if good remember,that last bottom select full strict domain

Your site works fine for me, apart from mixed content.


yup working,because using Universal Cloudflare SSL and on Full(strict) option,but if i set on off position,then i got infinity redirect loop and browser mad on because infinity “bad” redirections.:grinning:

If you set it to Off, you will need to disable all redirects to HTTPS on the server and only serve the page over http. The redirections probably cause the loop.
