    IF you have litterally just set this up then it could be a DNS propagation issue, it can take between 4 and 24 hours for DNS to propagate depending on your ISP.

    Try pressing CTRL + R or CMD + R depending on your platform whilst on the website, see if that makes a difference. If that doesn't work leave it for a couple of hours and I'm sure it will start working.

    You could post a link here i can take a look for you, see where the domain is currently pointing to for me.

    It's probably the cache.

    Your own computer is loading it from the cache, and not from the web, I expect.

    In other words, it isn't showing you what's there now: it's showing you its own record of what was there when it looked before.

    If you delete your browser history (or use a different browser), you'll see it, I think.

    (I think it's probably not a DNS propagation issue, if other people can see it and you can't!)

    It has been stolen from your computer.

    You can perhaps recover it by pressing CTRL + F5 on most browsers for a "forced" refresh. If you're using Chrome, you can also hit CTRL + Shift + N and enter the Incognito mode which means website loading won't access your cache, but it but it will also not show up in history, so I'm also giving you a tip on porn watching.

      What can you do? Mine was more accurate but Lucian's reply was still better. It's not easy, posting here, sometimes ...

    Have you checked-

    1) Have you check the DNS has updated properly across your computers?

      You should contact your web hosting company, maybe their Firewall blocked your IP.

    Are you only having this problem with your own website? Are other websites loading just fine on your computer? I wonder if this has something to do with an infected computer. Have you tried to restart your computer and check if that will make any difference?
