First I am not a web guy. I have been hosted with 1&1 for years. My 1&1 has a SSL Certificate but my 1&1 DNS points to Cloudflare.
I always get a Unsecure on most browsers but Google Chrome has a Error 525 SSL handshake failed. How can this be fixed so I can stop losing site visitors. I tried to trouble shoot this last year but then covid hit and my business was non existent. Now its picking up and a client told me he almost avoided my website because of the SSL issue.
I get a Not Secure because you don’t have “Always Use HTTPS” enabled in SSL/TLS → Edge Certificates. (automatic HTTPS rewrites is also handy)
I also get a 525 in Brave (Chrome) and Firefox. A 525 quite clearly means the server it’s pointed to doesn’t have valid SSL.
I suggest you use the “Pause Cloudflare on Site” option from the Overview tab at dash.cloudflare.com. The link is in the lower right corner of that page. Give it five minutes to take effect, then make sure site is working as expected with HTTPS. Only then should you un-pause Cloudflare and double-check your SSL/TLS setting to make sure it’s Full (Strict).
