When I visit your domain, I’m seeing the following:

“Gamified chinese language learning app… coming soon iOS and Android.”

If you’re not able to resolve your domain, it may be that the DNS has not fully resolved on your end. In some cases, DNS can take up to 24-48 hours to fully resolve unless it’s the first time you’ve visited the domain (previous lookups are cached by your ISP in most all cases – your browser also caches).

You can try flushing your web browser cache to see if that will allow the domain to resolve. If after the browser cache is flushed, you’re not able to resolve the domain, you can try resetting your modem (if you have Broadband or DSL).

If the above still doesn’t work, if you have another device that isn’t connected to your local network (such as a cell phone using the providers cell connection), try accessing it from there. DNS will begin to resolve seconds after it’s set, though in some cases it can take a little longer.
