Godaddy changed or Cloudfare SSL error

Cloudflare 520 error godaddy apparently changed my IP and i updated DNS A record It claims there still is a SSL error


Thank you for asking.

I am sorry to hear you are experiencing an Error 520 with your domain name while using Cloudflare.

Regarding Cloudflare 520 error, may I suggest you to try looking into below articles to troubleshoot the issue:

Hm, maybe the SSL certificate has to be “re-generated” or “renewed” due to the hosting change? :thinking:

Before moving to Cloudflare, was your Website working over HTTPS connection?

Did you tried to temporary Pause Cloudflare to see if anything different and if the Website loads fine without an error over secured HTTPS connection? :thinking:

You could determine this by:

  1. Use the “Pause Cloudflare on Site” option from the Overview tab for your domain at .
  2. The link is in the lower right corner of that page.
  3. Give it five minutes to take effect, then make sure site is working as expected with HTTPS without any error
  4. Check with your hosting provider / cPanel AutoSSL / Let’s Encrypt / Cerbot / ACME and renew it
  5. Only then, when your website responds over HTTPS, you should un-pause Cloudflare and double-check your SSL/TLS setting to make sure it’s Full (Strict).

May I ask what SSL option have you got selected under the SSL/TLS tab at Cloudflare dashboard for your domain ( Flexible, Full, Full Strict … )?

Here is a way to re-check if you correctly setup the SSL for your domain with Cloudflare:

In case you do not have an SSL certificate, you can use Cloudflare SSL, if so, kindly make sure you follow the instructions as follows on the below article to setup an SSL certificate using Cloudflare Origin CA Certificate:

Last but not least, kindly have a look here for more information regarding correct SSL settings at the SSL/TLS tab on Cloudflare dashboard:

Furthermore, do not skip below step and kindly re-check if Cloudflare is allowed to connect to your origin host to as follows in the below article:

Nevertheless, Cloudflare IP addresses list can be found here:
