Why is my custom domain showing page not found?
Sometimes I can see my custom domain up on my browser. However, when I try to access the my custom domain url via my phone, it is not showing it is up. Weirder yet, when it shows up on my browser, it is down for friends checking on my behalf states away. Other times they can see it, but I can’t.
I recently wrote a blogsite using blogdown and deployed from git to netlify. I purchased my custom domain with namecheap and set up custom DNS server names as specified with the netlify. The domain https://heathyates.netlify.app/ is working. At first, my custom domain www.heathyates.com was working, but now is giving me “Page Not Found Error” depending on when I check it. Here is the error:
I have verified that www.heathyates.com is a custom domain with netlify. I am getting the nice green icons telling me things look good there. In addition to the above, I have verified that the proper custom DNS addresses are configured with namecheap. The HTTPS is enabled and things look OK there.
Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this behaviour? Update: This issue has not abated after 24 hours.
Update: Potential Similar Issue and Dig Utility
This may be a similar issue, but I do not know how to troubleshoot in my case. See: New Namecheap Domain Not Working
However, I am at a loss at how to troubleshoot this still? As far as I know, everything seems to be configured on my side, but I cannot get it routed correctly.
I ran the dig utility and it is showing a status of no error. It shows this even when I cannot manually navigate to the page. I have exhausted all ideas and would appreciate a response from netlify folks in the know.
Update: Last Attempt
I have deleted the website with netlify and redid everything: new website, configure with git using default settings (relying on netlify.toml for environmental variables on my repo), configured the custom domain with netlify. If that doesn’t work, I may try to go back to namecheap for DNS as well.
