Too many redirects error with mapped domain on DEV Hosting

I mapped a domain to my wpmudev hosted site: but when I visit the domain or, I receive too many redirects error.

I changed the DNS in cloudflare to point to my hosts IP as shown in the domains tab in Hub page.

Initially the DNS validation turned green and the SSL generated and the site then displayed ok for a few minutes, but then the DNS validation turned red again and that’s when we got the too many redirects issue.

Currently i’ve reverted my DNS IP back to my hostgator IP address so the site isn’t offline for long.
