Domain in cloudflare not resolving to correct server

A couple of days ago I added the domain to Cloudflare, pointed it to the ip its supposed to talk to 149.x.x.x and gave it the usual 24-48hrs to pop in…

A couple of days later, if I ping the domain its pointing to which appears to be an internal ip address form Cloudflare, which is ok because they are protecting the server… but when I go to it via a browser it takes me to the typical bumper page from Cloudflare stating the server is not responding. If I go to the ip address i need the domain to point to, the nginx welcome screen shows up…;

So I don’t understand why its note working and would like a different pair of eyes to take a look if possible.

I also wanted to add, I have already flushed my dns, tried from other networks outside of the office and home, and I get the same result.

It does resolve to the right address, but your server appears to be down.

But it’s not.if you go straight to the IP, the server is up… in fact a lot of things work from the server’s view point:

Just not the domain…

Your Cloudflare account is configured for HTTPS and your server does not respond on port 443 →

You need to enable HTTPS on your server and configure a proper certificate.

You were right. Now it works… I didnt see the always switch to https being on…
