Please share your search results url:

When you tested your domain, what were the results?

Describe the issue you are having:
Site won’t load

What error message or number are you receiving?

What steps have you taken to resolve the issue?

  • Visit edge certificates and click Disable Universal SSL
  • Wait 5 minutes and then click Enable Universal SSL and wait 15 minutes for your Universal SSL certificate to issue
  • When the certificate status shows as Active, you can test your website again

Was the site working with SSL prior to adding it to Cloudflare?

What are the steps to reproduce the error:

Have you tried from another browser and/or incognito mode?

Please attach a screenshot of the error:

This is the link I visited: The Edge Certificate is stuck on Pendind Validation

You are bypassing cloudflare at the moment, go here to proxy :orange: the DNS A record with the same name as your site, https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/:zone/dns. Edit it from :grey: to proxy the record.

The site has been updated to use Cloudflare and the orange cloud is now active to proxy the A records and the CNAME (for www) through CF.

The Pending Validation is not resolving

We can now see your domain has an active SSL certificate through Cloudflare.

openssl s_client -connect bridgestreetexchange.com:443 -servername bridgestreetexchange.com < /dev/null 2>/dev/null | openssl x509 -noout -text |grep 'DNS:\|Issuer:\|Subject:';
        Issuer: C = US, ST = California, L = San Francisco, O = "Cloudflare, Inc", CN = Cloudflare Corporate Zero Trust
        Subject: CN = bridgestreetexchange.com
