What Is Error 1003 by Cloudflare

Cloudflare Error 1003 comes up when trying to access website content via the IP address rather than the website's domain. So, if you get this error, you're probably trying to bypass Cloudflare by querying the original IP.

However, the security service doesn't allow direct access to IPs in its network, so you get error code 1003 by Cloudflare.
