Nameserver pointing but showing nginx when viewing site

I have my dns records set correctly on namecheap. But when I view my website it says the following:

Welcome to nginx!

If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and working. Further configuration is required.

Thank you for using nginx.

I have no idea what to do from here. All my other websites are working correctly.

Pause Cloudflare and clarify with your host if you have configured the correct addresses. If not, adjust the address and make sure the site loads fine on HTTPS. If you have the right address, talk to your host to get that fixed and make sure the site loads fine on HTTPS.

Once it loads fine on HTTPS, you can unpause Cloudflare.

When removing cloudflare, I am able to see the site but it tells me the security certificate expired 645 days ago and the https:// is red and has a strike through. It sees the site as a security threat. How should I proceed?

Proceeding by following these instructions is probably the best next step.

Working on updating the SSL now.

SSL is updated and works when Cloudflare is disabled. When I enable Cloudflare it says its redirecting too many times and won’t load. Suggestions. I may have my DNS records set incorrectly. Where do I ind the right way to set these?

Set your SSL to Full Strict.

Perfect, the server is secure at this point and you have the right DNS entries. You only need to secure Cloudflare at this point and make sure you switch away from the current outdated, legacy mode and enable the Full Strict encryption mode.
