Getting Error 525 SSL Handshake Fail

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

When typing https://rlc.ventures it doesn’t seem to work but www.rlc.ventures 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 (rlc.ventures instead of www.rlc.ventures) 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 rlc.ventures/* and add a setting for Forwarding URL (301) to https://www.rlc.ventures/$1

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 “proxy-ssl.webflow.com

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