DNS changed to CloudFlare - Website still down

Hi all,

I’ve changed my DNS settings to Cloudflare last night and my website is still down.

Why does this take so long?


Pause Cloudflare and make sure your site is loading fine on HTTPS. If it does not, you need to contact your host so they fix the server.

Once it loads fine on HTTPS, you can unpause Cloudflare.

I paused Cloudflare and it works perfecyly fine. So what is the issue then

Your server will be either blocking or redirecting requests from the Cloudflare IP addresses.

Verify your server configuration and make sure the addresses from IP Ranges are not blocked anywhere. Go through your log files as well, also the default host log files.

Works fine for me. Are you maybe still seeing cached results?

What i did was turning on the SSL certificate on CF. It now works.

This should not have been SSL related as that was enabled anyhow.

But good that it’s working.

Hi Sandro,

What I’ve changed in Cloudflare was this:

from flexible to full

It should not have been Flexible, otherwise you’d have had a different issue.

Also, change that to Full Strict, as the current legacy mode is still insecure.
