Domain & Discourse hosted externally (Can't access domain)


I wanted to set up discourse at my externally hosted VPS. I got a domain from blazingfast.

However, I run the setup, and it said that it can’t access my subdomain. So I contacted blazingfast to disable the firewall and its protection (proxy) and whitelist my vps ip because they usually don’t allow connections from outside their network. I tried running the setup again, and it says it can’t establish a connection.

The subdomain points to my externally hosted vps.

I did the following steps.

Hostname for your Discourse? []:
Checking your domain name . . .
WARNING: Port 443 of computer does not appear to be accessible using hostname:
WARNING: Connection to (port 80) also fails.

Is there anything missing? Much appreciated.

PS: I forgot to mention that I have another website running at that VPS on port 80 (apache)

See if this helps;
