FIX: Webflow Redirected You Too Many Times
I was confused as to why I was being thrown a redirect error on my Webflow website, but this one thing fixed everything.
By Fitr Media | Jul 18, 2023
So this website, FitrMedia.com, is built and hosted with Webflow. However, I didn't always host Fitr Media on Webflow, even though I had built it on Webflow.
The reason I chose not to host with Webflow at first, is because I wasn't using any of Webflow's CMS functionality and I knew I could host it elsewhere for cheaper. However, once I decided to add some CMS functionality, like this blog, I finally decided to host FitrMedia.com on Webflow. And that's where I ran into this problem of Webflow redirecting me too many times.
When I eventually setup Webflow hosting for Fitr Media, I ran into an odd problem where when I was trying to load my website, I was being thrown an error by my web browser that said Webflow redirected me too many times.
The error looked identical to the one in the screenshot below:
I was confused as to why I was being thrown this error because I had setup everything correctly in my DNS records. After a little bit of trying different things, I found a fix to the problem. I simply had to change the default domain to www.fitrmedia.com (emphasis on the www). Previously, I had the domain fitrmedia.com set to the default.
To be completely honest, I have no idea why this is the case and why you need to make the default domain www.yourdomain.com. I noticed this fix worked for most people on the Webflow Forum, and in fact this is the exact fix I used when I was encountering this exact same problem with one of my client's Webflow websites.
Anyway, I hope this helps with your problem! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me directly here.
