I had something set up whacky in our DNS setup which is now resolved.

The remaining problem is that chrome has cached the incorrect setup.

Specifically, when using Chrome http://3rdrevolution.com is now redirecting to https://3rdrevolution.com (naked domain), which is not valid/supported. http://3rdrevolution.com SHOULD redirect to http://www.3rdrevolution.com and then force https://www.3rdrevolution.com.

But on a handful of browsers (including mine) this doesn't happen because of some funky chrome caching. I tried going to privacy -> clear cache but it had no effect.

check your plugins (like SSL everywhere) , have you tried to delete (shift+del)? Try to use google.com/ncr instead of google.xx. –  malakrsnaslava Mar 14 '13 at 0:25

https://www.3rdrevolution.com sends the Strict-Transport-Security header so accessing it over https once will make browsers like Chrome/Firefox redirect http requests to https until some specified point in the future.

As the other answer said, the only way to stop this once it starts is to clear the browser cache (or wait for the browser to expire the order).

There could be a couple of reasons for this, including plugins but assuming that you do not have any plugins installed you can do the following:

Goto Settings/Privacy/Clear Browsing Data...

Select The Beginning of Time in the pull down.


  • Clear saved Autofill form data
  • Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data
  • Empty the cache

Select Clear Browsing Data

This should take care of it doing any Auto-fill based on your previous browsing. Also, it will remove any of the cookies that could also be causing problems.

A less drastic alternative than clearing all cookies ever is Settings>Show advanced settings>Content Settings>All Cookies and site data then search for the sites in question and clear cookies for only those.

Anon is right about STS but there is a way to specifically delete your domain from the set. Go to chrome://net-internals and select "HSTS" from the drop down. Enter 3rdrevolution.com under Delete domain and press the Delete button.
