So I set up the client’s domain subdomain to a droplet, which serves as their “backend”. I can access the website fine on admin.clientdomain.com, on mobile, browsers and different browsers or computers. The DNS is handled by digital ocean, and I have confirmed this is working.
When the client attempts to access the subdomain on a safari browser (mac computer), it just reroutes to the main domain. When giving them the IP of the droplet, it just loads a white screen. The droplet has a Wordpress site from the marketplace loaded on it.
The site is also https encrypted with lets-encrypt.
The website is the default Wordpress one from the marketplace, I have the default apache2 conf, and in /var/html/.htaccess I have this (to redirect to the admin panel, as this is used as a CMS).
RedirectMatch ^/$ /wp-admin

I’m running out of ideas, besides it being an issue with the client’s ISP.
