Hi all! Hope you are doing fine. My name is August,

Currently I have my domain ( with Namecheap everything was working well using their nameservers and the config I had there.I chose to move my registrar from Namecheap to Cloudflare today however it will not take place until 5 days from now. I did have my nameservers changed to Cloudflare already:

Now when logging in to my account at Cloudflare I see that the nameserver setting were taken over already:
A - - - TTL Auto - Proxied
MX - - - TTL Auto – DNS only
TXT - _amazonses - xxxx(left out for security reasons) - TTL Auto - DNS only

And all should be working fine as this was the exact same config I had using Namecheap
Also I can confirm the server that is behind this IP has more than sufficient capacity:

  • 16 core CPU / 32 RAM / No services running except of a NAS at a specific port and a 100Mbps dedicated line.

However I still receive the following ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT / Error 522 whatever service/ports I access through the domain “”

Also I can confirm that the ports are correctly opened as I have not changed a thing on the server or the server´s network´s end, and everything was working just perfect before I changed the nameservers to Cloudflare.

I hope someone can guide me here as I have basic knowledge but am not an expert either.

Thanks so much for your time!

Are you sure you don’t have some server firewall set up? I can’t connect to your server using your A Record’s IP address:
curl -I --connect-to ::189.[redacted]
curl: (7) Failed to connect to 189.[redacted] port 80: Operation timed out

Ah, Cloudlfare doesn’t Proxy those. It’s meant to be a website proxy service unless you’re using Spectrum on an Enterprise plan.

Really? I didn´t know that, thanks for the tip!!
However, I just did a test, setting my server to use port 80 and 443 to run the services I need and opened these ports on my firewall too however still the same issue here

Are those services using HTTP/S?
