I cannot reach this website that I am building - https://www.houseofsilnyevents.com on any browser. I am trying from my laptop and I am not using a corporate network with an internal DNS system; just a private home network.

 

I have already tried the following:

  1. Clearing your browser cache
  2. Flushing my DNS
  3. Tried to ping the domain from command line [unsuccessful]
  4. Implemented the 'host file trick' [here's a screenshot of my host file]

 

It's worth noting that if I try to go to the site from a cell phone, using LTE and not Wifi, the site loads fine.

 

I'm at a loss of what to do here and really need to access this site so that I can build it for my client. Does anyone have additional suggestions?

Try using OpenDNS servers. I had no problem reaching the site. 

 

After changing to OpenDNS flush your DNS cache.

Glad that sorted it out. Thanks for the update. I would have to surmise your ISP has not updated their DNS servers to reach that address.
