Failed to open page

Hi guys, I need help. I was trying to get SSL for my website. I followed the instructions, changed the nameservers, and Cloudflare shows my website and the statistics just fine on the dashboard. However, when I actually go to my website (I tried on multiple browsers and I tried clearing the cache), it shows me “Error: load cannot follow more than 20 redirections”. I mean… what the hey.

Host: GoDaddy

Can you please head over to and check your current SSL/TLS encryption mode?

If it is currently set to Flexible, then switch to Full (Strict).

I did it and got a different error message (526). But then I tried just putting it in “Full” mode and it worked. Thank you so much for your quick reply and suggestion. I’m so glad it was something easy.

You will want to correct the invalid certificate on your origin server that is preventing Full (strict) from working.

Ok, how do I do that?

Some hosting plans may include free certificates, others plans may require you to pay extra, for their management of the certificates.

Depending on your GoDaddy plan, it could maybe even be possible to install an Cloudflare Origin Certificate on your GoDaddy hosting, in which case it can be done at no extra cost:

If your GoDaddy plan is one of those that allows for the installation of custom certificates, a Cloudflare Origin Certificate can be generated according to the instructions over here:
