Wix Website Error: Too Many Redirects – Caused by Cloudflare

Wix Website Error: Too Many Redirects - caused by Cloudflare

As a Wix Web Designer, I like to share solutions to common problems that I encounter. Here's a doozy that we just figured out regarding Wix and Cloudflare:

This week (Feb 25, 2019), upon the release of Wix Turbo, I had a client who's Wix website started getting a "Too Many Redirects" error. Their website hosting is with Wix, but the Yahoo registered domain had it's Domain Name Servers being pointed through Cloudflare by their IT department. Their IT department uses Cloudflare to provide content delivery network services, DDoS mitigation, Internet security and distributed domain name server services. Cloudflare's services sit between the visitor and the Cloudflare user's hosting provider, acting as a reverse proxy for websites. In the Cloudflare DNS settings is where the Wix pointing A record and CNAME record are setup, as well as their Microsoft 365 email MX servers. But, this week, Wix websites going through Cloudflare for DNS support were suddenly were experiencing errors – and their webpage was showing an "Too many redirects" error instead of the website.
