Error 525 as admin but I cannot also verify my website

**Hi there,

from the time I 've changed my DNS to Cloudflare website for free SSL, I have many times errors. Now I have the 525 error but the problem is that I cannot also verify my ownership in Webmaster tools.
(I don’t know why is keep asking me these verifications though, I 've verified it in the past and still keep asking me)
So, what do I do now? I have this error and I also cannot visit my site…**

Any insights please???

Please don’t give me a canned answer,
describe to me step by step what I need to do,
I told you that I am the admin.

Common causes

The most common causes include:

  • The origin web server does not have a valid SSL certificate installed.
  • The origin web server is not listening on port 443 (or other custom secure port).
  • The origin web server does not support or is not configured properly for SNI.
  • The cipher suites that Cloudflare accepts and the cipher suites that the origin server supports do not match.

However, there could be other intermittent conditions that can cause Error 525

So,
my origin web server is still on Godaddy?
Isn’t it on CF??

When you transition to Cloudflare, your actual web server is still hosted somewhere else. CF just provides the CDN/SSL/etc. Since you’re on GoDaddy, you should go to the SSL/TLS app and set SSL to “flexible”.

O.k I did that, do you think that would solve my issue?
