    Domain only loading on host ip

    Hello, for some reason if type in the domain name on the windows 2012 vps thats hosting the server, it works fine. But if I type in the domain on another pc it doesn’t load??

    I can load the webpage on a different pc by entering the ip, it’s just the domain that won’t load?

    It has been a while since I did Windows Hosting, but my question is...

     

    Did you update the DNS at the domain level to point to the windows IP.

    As I recall when you add a domain in IIS it sets up the local DNS so if you type in the domain it's going to show, but you still need to update the DNS at the domain level as well.

    Hello, I gave it 24 hours after updating the dns settings on go daddy and the domain started to work, now all of a sudden its stopped again? no settings have been changed on the server. guessing its a godaddy fault?

    Hello, it appears that the domain is blocking all public networks. I can connect via the domain name on any home network, but when I attempt to connect over 3g or 4g it doe not work

    What is the domain and the IP address it should be pointed at?

    I'm in the US and that loaded just fine for me both with the IP and the domain - this would suggest to me that perhaps it is a local DNS / cache issue
