Domain goes to wrong location

This URL is going to the wrong location. It is supposed to go to a different landing page and my IT help can’t figure out what the problem is. They said to check with Cloudflare why it brings up an overseas casino.

Together with your IT team, I would suggest that you check whether or not that the relevant DNS records (most often A, AAAA, and/or CNAME) are as they are supposed to be.

You did not mention your domain name, so it isn’t possible to look in to that much, rather than e.g. guessing from here.

However, if you can confirm with your IT team that the way the casino is brought up, is due to a redirection from your website to the casino website, then your Cloudflare account has most likely been compromised.

I would therefore advice you to look through the following:

Log in to your Cloudflare account, change your password, and preferably also enable two-factor authentication (2FA).

Check the Audit Log page, to figure out who/what is making the changes:

Check the "Members page, to see if you’re letting others access your account:

https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/members

Check the “API Tokens” page, to see if there are any tokens you don’t use or otherwise know about:

https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/profile/api-tokens

Check the “Redirect Rules” page, and delete the bad one(s) from there:

https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/:zone/rules/redirect-rules

I also suggest to go through the other kind of Rules your zone may have, and check for any potential malicious changes there as well.
