Redirection error

Hello, I am quite a beginner when it comes to Cloudflare and DNS. I have now “transferred” the DNS configuration for my new website to Cloudflare. Since then I get the following error when I call the domain:

Error: Redirection error
An error occurred while connecting to
This problem can sometimes occur when cookies are disabled or refused.

Is this normal within the up to 48h until the internet knows where to look?

Generally I got the confirmation that Cloudflare is active. The denic whois query shows the two Cloudflare name servers.


Thank you for asking.

I am sorry to hear you’re experiencing an issue with redirect loops.

More information why and how they happen here:

Before moving to Cloudflare, was your Website working over HTTPS connection?

May I ask what SSL option have you got selected under the SSL/TLS tab at Cloudflare dashboard for your domain ( Flexible, Full, Full Strict … )?

Hi fritex, thanks for your quick help. I had also previously configured the website with my hosting provider to be accessed via https. I have not yet been in the SSL/TLS tab, because I had thought about whether the error message is displayed due to the DNS / nameserver move. After I changed the encryption mode from Flexible to Full, the website can be accessed directly.

Full is still insecure. As @fritex wrote, it should be Full Strict.

Thank you for recommending the “full strict” mode again. I had the setting today at noon initially just want to quickly test whether my website works again. Now I have adjusted the mode as recommended by you both. Was not sure at first, because here “trusted CA or a Cloudflare Origin CA certificate” is required and I was not sure if I meet that.

That is correct, but these are the only secure certificates.

Sorry that I then ask again so stupid. Since my website continues to work after the change, I can assume that I have a secure certificate configured here in Cloudflare and also at my web host?
