Help - Failed SSL Handhshake - 1 Cloudflare Subdomain Pointing to Another Cloudflare Domain


I would really appreciate some help with this issue. I have a website hosted on GoDaddy but with Cloudflare nameservers ( I am trying to point a subdomain - “” to the website, but without a redirect so the users will see the latter subdomain in the URL. I created an A record with “pages” in the host, and the IP address of, so that they would basically both point to the same IP address, but I am getting a failed SSL handshake. Does anyone know what might be going on?


Hi @user2779,

That 525 means you don’t have a valid SSL/TLS certificate for that hostname. Is your server/hosting panel configured to serve that site on the subdomain, with SSL?
