Homepage not Loading after I removed my site from CloudFlare


Hi I tried to use cloudflare but ran into issues with my site being broken. I also tried to activate SSL.
I decided not to use CF but after I pointed back to my own hosting server and deleted the site, it still trying to reroute my site (htts://www.bigapplemedia.com/) and the page is giving 404 or says it’s not secure.
Can someone help me fix this? I just need my page to be back the way it was before I switched to CloufFlare.

Thank you for your help.


The issues appear to be with your origin. You have no SSL on your origin server which matches your site, when you ignore that warning the site is returning a 404. Attempting to access the site over http you are redirected to the https. You may have a .htaccess rule redirecting the site to https or something similar on the origin.

curl -I https://www.bigapplemedia.com/
curl: (51) SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name ‘www.bigapplemedia.com

Thank you for your help. I restored my httaccess to how it was few weeks ago before I switched, so there is nothing in htaaccess file.

Do you know what else might be causing the site trying to redirect?


Not sure if you host has another mechanism to support that… you might doublecheck the file to be sure it is actually changed on the server. It’s definitely happening at the origin (no Cloudflare involved).
