Discourse site not accessible via domain name, only via IP address

Hi Guys,

I know this is slightly off topic but if anyone can help that would be great. My discourse website has suddenly gone down (it is hosted by digital ocean) - this was working a few minutes ago

http://shoppers.community/t/amazing-liquor-deals-at-costco-lidcobme/72/3

any assistance greatly appreciated.

update - the IP adress works - http://128.199.169.13/

the name doesn’t - can (or how./ why?) would my DNS hosting service change this?>

Loads fine for me.

Seems like a DNS issue if you can get to the IP but not the domain name.

Here are two places to check that worldwide:

For me, your domain name DNS checks out in both of those across the board, worldwide.

It was great to get your help! cheers
