please help! i have all the settings correct (as far as i can tell) on google domains, Cloudflare, and also Anima (a plugin used by Adobe XD, the program i used to design the website. I published it around 24 hours ago, and it’s still not up
What’s the domain?
hi! Thanks for your reply!!! The domain is: benjamingillette dot com
Did you have the Anima website working before using Cloudflare?
as in published and working? No. As soon as i was ready, I always just go direct to google domains and Cloudflare, and update the settings from the first step.
yup, as far as i can see, i did. i’ll show you a screenshot now
omg!!! it is working!!! how come it looks like your connection is secure (with the padlock icon) but mine isn’t?
There’s a setting in Cloudflare called “Always use HTTPS” which will redirect HTTP to HTTPS. You will want to turn that on.
you guys are the FREAKING BEST, dudes!!!
omg dude! where the ■■■■ is that setting?!? to turn HTTP into HTTPS?!~?! I can’t find it [email protected]!
it’s cool my dude, i found it! i learned a lot from this chat! it fixed all my issues! thanks!!!
There’s one more thing I’d recommend setting up, because having your website available on www and non-www technically means it’s two websites with the same content, which isn’t great for SEO.
I would recommend following this tutorial (skip step 1 in your case) to redirect your website to always use the www subdomain:
However, if you prefer to redirect to the non-www URL (I don’t recommend this method, especially when hosting on services like yours), then you can follow this tutorial instead:
jesus dude, this is freaking awesome! Thank you! I will follow that first tutorial! I’m a video content creator, not a web developer or designer, so this sort of thing is WAAAAY outta my league. But you saved me bro! thank you!!!
