Hi there,

This usually happens when there is no index file in your document root. I could suggest first checking your server logs for some more information regarding the problem.

If you are using Apache, you could do that with:

tail -100 /var/log/apache2/error.log

If you are using Nginx run:

tail -100 /var/log/nginx/error.log

Also, indeed if you have multiple A records, it is possible that your website is loading from an incorrect server.

You can check that here:

Feel free to share the output of the error log here.

Best,

Bobby
