"This site can't be reached" I can access via SFTP/SSH

Posted July 9, 2019 1.2k views

My site suddenly just stopped responding after creating another droplet with another DO account. Although I can access via SFTP/SSH, the only way I can see my site is from my phone on data or from other devices.

So it seems to me the problem is my DNS cache or proxy. Any suggestions?

@necoinsamx Can you provide us with the domain name you are seeing issues with?

Based on the information available, it sounds like a DNS issue.

  • Thanks Bob, I double checked my DNS ( and my droplet pointing to the right address. I still can’t make it work

    • Can you try pinging the domain name and make sure that you get the correct IP?

      Also try to ping the www version as well.

      Have you made any changes to your local hosts file recently?
