Replit Custom Domain Issue SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

Hi there replit users! My domain “” has been successfully verified on my repl. But when I try going into my website with that domain name, it shows the error “SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR”, is this replit issue or my code issue?

Before free domain from replit worked perfectly, and in the preview the website seems OK and running.

i have had this happen to me, i have also seen this all over ask.replit. it’s probably a repl issue. if your using cloudflare it might be that when i used it the same thing happened then i just used freenom’s hosting.

It usually resolves itself within 24 hours of linking the domain.


hey, in case the above solutions don’t work,

if you use cloudflare, try using fullstrict mode in ssl settings:
Full (strict) - SSL/TLS encryption modes · Cloudflare SSL/TLS docs

It’s because replit’s own hosting uses the strictest SSL so your cloudflare needs to match that.
