Is it me or does the BHW Homepage redirect to Cloudflare?

    Seems pretty weird, redirects me to cloudfare all the time and I can only get here indirectly.

    it never happened to me but considering 2-3 members here confirmed what OP said, i think it could be possible someone is playing around with BHW. I think OP isnt that stupid (wrongly type bhw url) so maybe it's bhw itself that has some issues. Hopefully they resolve it soon.

    Could be wrong here but I think it has to do with the new owner making changes to the website? I got it a few times. I also got the "site under construction" several times.


    This is just a guess...

    I get either that page on the screenshots above or simply redirects to CloudFlare's homepage. Mostly it's working right though.
    We tried CloudFlare a few weeks ago on our site, some of the customers (genuine, long time customers) were complaining that it didn't let them check the site. Took it off immediately...

    Nope you'd get a page with a captcha to verify you're not a "malicious bot". Coz malicious bots can't break captcha as we all know :D:D

    Some site blocking you wouldnt give you a 404.

    404 is when the link you try is dead. You would be taken to a page of cloudflare itself.


    Edit : Ah, the reply above mine tells it better.
