SSL doesn't seem to be working + 403 error

Hi there,

Would love some help from this community. I’ve set up this domain with CloudFlare (GoDaddy is a DNS Provider). Cloudflare seems to be recognizing it as active but I’m experiencing these 2 errors, I assume they are related:

  1. When I open the site, the connection isn’t secure, so I get a browser warning
  2. If I proceed in spite of the warning, I get a 403 error. FYI, there is a redirect Page Rule set up which should forward all traffic to a different domain.

Thanks in advance!

I don’t think those are cloudflare-related, here is a way to test, Diagnostic Center | Check SSL and Test Website Security | Cloudflare.

When you say

Set up appears to have completed but seems you changed the nameservers? The domain looks like it was added to cloudflare and the nameservers were confirmed. But those changes are not showing Historical NS records for - SecurityTrails and $ dig ns and here DNS Checker - DNS Propagation Check & DNS Lookup. I suspect this is all related to:

The domain has a bunch of icann errors that will prevent you from setting this up until you clear them with your domain registrar (is that also gd? If so, you can change the nameservers online at their site, not sure about clearing the error online, however.)

Domain Status: clientDeleteProhibited
Domain Status: clientRenewProhibited
Domain Status: clientTransferProhibited
Domain Status: clientUpdateProhibited

PS - If you’re still having issues, tune in this Friday YTCC - Getting Started with email & name servers, we’ll talk about nameserver changes and issues.

Thanks very much for pointing me in the right direction! Will try to work with GoDaddy directly to resolve.
