Hello, @HappyAquamarineMantaRay

You can first check if the issue is indeed only with your network connection. You can try switching networking and trying to access the site again.

If the issue remains you can double-check the DNS for the domain name and ensure everything is configured properly. You can use our DNS Lookup tool as well:

The other thing to check is if the web-server Apache/Nginx is running at the moment, as this will cause issues accessing the site as well.
