EDIT: It has started working again
So just few hours ago I bought a domian name but suddenly it has stopped working.
The domain name is www.nerdishunicorn.com
This message displays when I try to open my website:
This site can’t be reached
www.nerdishunicorn.com unexpectedly closed the connection.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I know it's resolved now, but just thought I would share the most likely cause for this. When you update the DNS records on a domain, the first 72 hours can be a bit funny, as the domain is in the propagation stages.
The propagation stages are the time from when you update your DNS records and the time the DNS resolver on your ISP's side refreshes.
To demonstrate this I took the below screenshots of my website. They're both taken from the same computer and the same internet connection.
This one is using the standard Centurylink DNS resolvers. Which I don't normally use because I regularly get DNS issues.
This one is the up to date version using a third-party DNS resolver.
