broken link icon, no page on brave or chrome
display fine in firefox focus
have been fiddling around for many days now, trying to figure out how this dns resolving and domain forwarding works. it usually worked fine with prior free hosts or with wordpress.com itself but seemed to be ‘wobbly’? here with infinity free. tried many different things, both here or with the registrar’s settings. also looked through all the help pages and here in the forum to get my head round. no one else seemed to have this problem. was almost giving up.
i can’t connect to dns resolvers directly (that would’ve been the most obvious solution, i thought, to get more accurate and real time feedback from my change of settings). it seems the internet provider here (austria) blocks this.
but then, on a haunch, i looked for other browser alternatives. tor can’t connect to infinity, citing x-frame issues (no idea what that means).
and then i tried firefox focus - compelling in its simplicity - and it worked. it did display the infinity wp url when i enter my domain domain names. it does show me the proper forwarding. how’s this possible?
now i’m wondering what’s at work here. can anybody else on the internet see what firefox focus shows me or what brave and chrome show me (ie - nothing, lol)?
is the forwarding actually not working and firefox focus inexplicably showing me infinity cache instead?
are the dns resolvers of my provider useless? meaning, no one within their ‘area’ can see these pages? what would be a reasonable workaround, then?
(obviously, on the browser side, i’ve emptied all cache … several times even …)
thanks a lot in advance for any help or advice …
and hello to the community, btw. it seems like a really nice place here
