Error message and website not loading

I am getting this message: Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 429 ()
Please help!

429 is a rate-limiting error. Have you created any Rate Limiting Rules in the WAF section of the Cloudflare dashboard? This is a paid feature so you can’t have done it by accident.

Assuming it’s not a rule you created, this error will be coming from your origin web server, not from Cloudflare.

Thanks! I am really not sure what that means … what steps do I take to fix that? I did not create that rule.

I think the only other way you get a 429 from Cloudflare is within a Worker. (Someone correct me if I’m wrong?) Which means this will be coming from your web host and will need to be addressed there.
