DO Website + CloudFlare = Too many problems

  • Posted on October 15, 2014

For last couple of days I am facing problems with using Digital Ocean website… First my browser started to give me security warning sayings SSL is not valid since it was pointing to or such URL so I had to continue without a secure connection.

Then multiple times I was getting diverted to a CloudFlare landing page asking for verification, which I was not been able to complete (since captcha was never visible)…

Am I the only one facing this type of issue (randomly) ??

What do I do about it ??
