Staging site redirecting to www.staging, causing SSL not to work

Hi - I recently set up a staging site but Cloudflare appends www to the beginning of it, so it’s www.staging.site.com. The problem is that Cloudflare’s SSL only covers one level up from the home site.com domain, so staging.site.com would work but NOT www.staging.site.com.

I’m trying to figure out the easiest way to resolve this so the staging site can load. Any suggestions or fixes appreciated.

The easiest fix is to un-proxy that hostname.

p.s. Cloudflare does not prepend ‘www’ unless you’ve configured a page rule to do so.
