Hi again, we can’t post the domain name until we’re going to launch the sites – which may be never at this rate – so I understand if you can’t comment on this.
Here’s what happened, anyway:
We found what appears to be the main issue: Yesterday, I removed our previous SSL certificate, which had been installed by Godaddy last week.
So earlier today, I asked Godaddy’s supporter if it had in fact been completely deleted or if it might be part of this issue.
The supporter said it was completely removed. I checked now but it still ‘existed’ in some way, though it wasn’t attached to the site as such. So I used the ‘revoke’ option – and immediately all the warnings disappeared from our site. The following warning also disappeared: " All Queries to demand.gamma.aridns.net.au for [domain]/DS timed out or failed"
We still can’t use the site though, as it simply doesn’t display any content we upload. When we try to log into the domain itself via Filezilla using the domain as Host, Filezilla lists an IP address that’s not ours. So we can only open the site using Filezilla if we type our correct IP address instead of .gold domain as Host.
So it’s like the domain have been pointing to a wrong IP address after we switched to Cloudflare. I wanted to check A Records in Godaddy, but that’s no longer possible because the site is now on Cloudflare.
In other words, there are a good deal of gotchas and catch 22s going on so we probably have to choose if we’re staying with Godaddy or Cloudflare, and if it’s the latter I’m not really sure what we should use instead of Godaddy in order not to repeat any of this…
