*I have recently changed my domain registrar to cloudflare.
*My old website was hosted on Godady and I moved contents to google sites.
*I have followed all instructions to the letter to connect my domain to my site, but it is not working at all, my website is not visible to visitors any more. I have read the articles on this help forum and I’ve tried many suggestions to resolve the error but nothing is working. Visitors get the error "404. That is an error. The requested URL / was not found on this server. That is all we know.
I have attached a shot of my DNS settings for u to see.
I’ll be very grateful if u can help me resolve this issue… Thanks in anticipation.
The www hostname doesn’t work, either, indicating a problem with the origin server at Google Sites. Best to pause Cloudflare, or set the corresponding hostnames to DNS Only, and resolve the Google Sites issues first.
There are also a lot of leftover Proxied GoDaddy cPanel CNAMEs that could stand to be cleaned up to eliminate some of the useless visual noise in the zone.
Is there a “correct” or “default” DNS records screen_shot that I can follow to make things work? I am no technical and find it difficult to understand the big picture of the correct settings.
I am grateful for your assistance.
By default a zone starts out empty. You had records created by your GoDaddy cPanel hosting. When you moved your DNS to Cloudflare you brought those records over. You then added Google Sites records, though possibly not according to their directions since you are having 404 errors.
You may wish to review the process in the Google documentation.
HI, I have cleaned all the stuff from my DNS, and started fresh, done everything according to google_sites directions, still no joy, but the error message has changed to : This page is not redirecting properly etc…, there is no “too many redircts”. My SSL/TLS is set to full and there is no page rules created. screen capture attached, thanks for anticipated help.
I am reasonably certain that the dummy IP is to accommodate an originless redirect, such as a Page Rule or a Redirect Rule. I am successfully redirected from the apex name to the www host before the redirect loop begins.
The error message changed to: Seure connection failed. An error occured during connection to the website.
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data cannot be verified.
