Hi @adeyemi,

What is supposed to be served on that Subdomain? It sounds like you either don’t have a web service to serve you anything when you reach the domain or your firewall is blocking the connection.

What is supposed to be shown when you load the Subdomain, I’ll assume some kind of an APP, is that correct? If yes, what is serving the App, is it Nginx or Apache? Check your configs there, have you configured the Subdomain on them?
