I have a separate static site setup according to https://docs.webfaction.com/software/static.html#static-redirecting-from-http-to-https

This redirects to the https site which is a static site. Before it jumps though for some reason it bounces to /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi before remapping. This results in a 404 on the HTTPS site.

Try http://theorm.space to see

What is happening here?

OK I figured it out, it is a caching issue, the placeholder page redirected to this URL and the browser has remembered it. Clearing the browsers' cache fixed it.
