Question

Nginx domain name resolves using curl but not using the browser

I followed the tutorial on installing nginx and adding a domain name. The domain name is abdou.dev. I can curl it via the terminal and I get back the html I expect, It also works with a proxy like hidester. But I can’t reach it using the browser. I tried different browsers, I cleared the cache, but no use. Any idea? And thanks in advance.

Hi @aouahib,

This seems like an issue with the Nginx configuration file rather than anything else.

In such cases, It’s always best to stick with the basics and see if everything will workthat way as well. The best place to take a basic config that should JUST work is from here:

I guess it’s because .dev domains are on HSTS preload list. I’ll configure SSL and see.
