Cloudflare: Fix “AutoSSL reduced SSL coverage” Error

Block Header

After configuring my website to use Cloudflare, I found a scary looking message in my inbox that had a subject of “AutoSSL reduced SSL coverage“. The email showed a message that said ‘“www.streamersworld.com” does not resolve to any IPv4 addresses on the internet.

I couldn’t understand why I received this message. But I compared it with the configuration of my other websites, and it appears to be a simple DNS setting.

To solve this issue, I signed into my Cloudflare account, selected “DNS” and added a new CNAME for “www” that pointed to my domain “streamersworld.com“.

Adding a CNAME to Cloudflare DNS

That’s it! Now if a visitor to my site goes to www.streamersworld.com, it just redirects to streamersworld.com. This should resolve the Cloudflare error email.
