My site is not reachable via DNS (URL). But it is accessible via [ipaddress]:[port]. Could some one please help me to sort out this issue?

My site is hosted via Sub Domain URL. When I am hitting that URL it saying “This site can’t be reached”. When I am trying to access same site via [IPAddress]:[Port] then it is easily reachable.

Please could someone help me in this.


@matt41f5576fd18eff1f5bf8ed : I have setup “A” record for my sub-site. Is that enough ?

Have you set up your DNS records properly? You need an a CNAME replacing with your real domain etc. There isn’t much to go on in your question.

When did you set the A record? Keep in mind that due to DNS cache from the ISPs all DNS changes might take up to 24 hours in order to fully propagate. You can check the propagation using this link:

Have you tried checking your site using a hosts file to see if everything works fine?

Let me know how it goes.
