DNS not updating, please help :(

Dear community,

My wordpress web site was down today. The hosting company suggested to upgrade to a higher service package that required me update DNS names. I did not but still I cannot reach my new hosting site.

Changes on Cloudflare:

What I see on my hosting panel:

When I initially updated the DNS on Cloudflare, I also saw an error that looked like this:

Domain is hosted on Godaddy and I have not made any changes. Hosting is hosted with Raidboxes.

I will appreciate prompt support.


And I get the following error:

Error 521

Ray ID: 6e1300eb9cf19299 • 2022-02-21 21:17:48 UTC

Web server is down

Domain: https://vasistdas.de


Thank you for asking.

Kindly, make sure the CNAME email is :grey: (DNS-only).

Third screenshot, there are topics about this and this is an ongoing warning on the dashboard which is going to be resolved soon I believe:

Currently, I see can see website is loading slowly.

Before moving to Cloudflare, was your Website working over HTTPS connection?

You could determine this by:

  1. Use the “Pause Cloudflare on Site” option from the Overview tab for your domain at dash.cloudflare.com .
  2. The link is in the lower right corner of that page.
  3. Give it five minutes to take effect, then make sure site is working as expected with HTTPS without any error
  4. Check with your hosting provider / cPanel AutoSSL / Certbot / ACME / Let’s Encrypt and renew it
  5. Only then, when your website responds over HTTPS, you should un-pause Cloudflare and double-check your SSL/TLS setting to make sure it’s Full (Strict).

May I ask what SSL option have you got selected under the SSL/TLS tab at Cloudflare dashboard for your domain ( Flexible, Full, Full Strict … )?

Kindly re-check if Cloudflare is allowed to connect to your origin host (any firewall or something similar at your hosting provider) as follows in the below article:

Nevertheless, Cloudflare IP addresses list can be found here:
