I could suggest a couple of things:

  • Try clearing your Chrome browser’s cache

  • Try installing a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate so that you could visit your website via HTTPS as well as HTTP. Sometimes Chrome would redirect to HTTPS by default and if you don’t have an SSL your website would not load:

Let me know how it goes!

Let's Encrypt is a Certificate Authority (CA) that provides an easy way to obtain and install free TLS/SSL certificates, thereby enabling encrypted HTTPS on web servers. It simplifies the process by providing a software client, Certbot, that attempts to automate most (if not all) of the required steps. In this tutorial, you will use Certbot to obtain a free SSL certificate for Nginx on Ubuntu 20.04, and set up your certificate to renew automatically.
