Hello… I deployed a nodejs application with nginx server.
when I open the browser to the server’s ip http://184.108.40.206 I can see the app running
However, when I open it with my domain name http://haltamah.app I get the following error
‘This site can’t be reached haltamah.app refused to connect.’
When I run the following command curl http://haltamah.app I can see the app content
When I ping it ping http://haltamah.app I get the following error
‘ping: cannot resolve http://haltamah.app: Unknown host’
Any idea what could be the issue?

http://part of the FQDN as follows:
I’ve tested it and it seems to be working as expected.
Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
