Getting 522 error when attempting to visit my website

Since this morning, my online monitoring system has reported a failure to my website. When I attempt to bring it up, I am getting a 522 error when going to

The website statistics and bandwidth is very low, so it shouldn’t be getting overloaded. DNS lookup on my domain name shows the correct IP addresses as well.

I am not sure how to check of requests are being blocked some where in Cloudflare as I am new to the service. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I solved my issue by removing my domain name from Cloudflare. The site instantly came back up… Hmm…

For example, your server is not configured for HTTPS, so if you had Cloudflare set to use HTTPS it is clear it failed.

Interesting, because I did not change anything in Cloudflare to set it to HTTPS. It has been working for 3 weeks without any issue. I figured if it was going to fail, it would of done it sooner…

It probably should. If you want to check what the issue was you’d need to set up your site once more.

I will add it back to Cloudflare and see if it fails again

Also, post screenshots of your Crypto section.


I’d check the server and the overall infrastructure for any firewall rules which could block Cloudflare from connecting.

Your DNS records in Cloudflare are accurate I presume, right? They do point to x.x.x.64?

The record looks correct, yes. It is the one ending in .64

Well, I have gone through my plugins and extensions that I use with GoDaddy. I don’t see any firewall or service that would prevent connections to and from the server.

Website went back down… Getting same error 522. Anything else I can check?

Something must prevent Cloudflare from connecting. It either is a firewall or something similar or there is some network issue. If you can definitely rule out the former I’d open a support ticket and forward one of the connection IDs you get on the error screen.

Whom would I open a ticket with?

You’re not the only one having this issue, I’m getting the 522 error since this morning. I contacted GoDaddy support and they stated that the problem was with Cloudfare since they can access my webpage with no problems.

Hope that we can get our sites operational soon.

Look, I had recently an automated response from Cloudfare with the following information:

" Hi there,

Thanks for writing to Cloudflare Support.

We have run an automated test and we can see that your website is returning with a 4xx error.

A 4xx Client Error is a client side error that means that the client sent something the origin was unable to process. Cloudflare does not generate any 4xx error code, so this would indicate something is not configured correctly with your hosting provider or your client is sending something incorrect. The best next steps would be to have this client generate a HAR file and send this to your hosting provider to identify what potential misconfiguration could be in place.

If you have any further questions or doubts, please contact Cloudflare Support. "

In that case my guess would be Godaddy made some changes which prevent Cloudflare from connecting. It might be best to clarify this with Godaddy.

This also wouldn’t surprise me, this is not the first time they have done something like this…

I sent the DNS records to GoDaddy, I hope that they can come up with a solution since my website is down for four hours.
