Getting Error 525 SSL Handshake Fail

Really struggling here and getting lots of people messaging saying they are getting this error.

When typing it doesn’t seem to work but does work. It has been fine for a year but since earlier this week it’s been hitting these errors. The website is hosted on Webflow and webflow is telling me to add some A Records, which I have done.

The errors persist. I think it may be to do with the SSL not liking using a root domain ( instead of but I have no idea how to fix this.

Please help!

Here is an image of the error.

That tells me that your server has a valid certificate for ‘www’, but not one without the ‘www’.

Since ‘www’ seems to be your canonical URL, I suggest you add a Page Rule like this:

  1. Match* and add a setting for Forwarding URL (301) to$1
1 Like

So more a website/redirect issue than something on the DNS level?

I was reading some troubleshooting on Webflow and people suggested removing the SSL from this CNAME record “

This enables the site to run more generally, but still is now preventing some ‘routes in’ to the site to not function correctly.
