Site error after successful domain transfer and connection

Recommended Posts

Hello, if anyone has any insight on a domain connection error I would appreciate any help. 

 

I recently transferred over a domain from a WordPress site (run by someone else) I successfully transferred the domain to a Namecheap account. I connected it to the new SS site however when I try to put the domain into a browser, I receive this error: DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

 

Has this ever happened to anybody else? I'm a little confused. 

 

Thank you so much for any advice! I've also searched this up and tried things like releasing my IP. 

 

Also, the WordPress site no longer exists.

This is normal and is because you've previously accessed this domain when it was on the other site. The cached information doesn't match the new site.

New users can view the site without issue. 

It may take up to 72 hours for it to be visible to you without an error, but if you try connecting to it from another device on another network (for example a mobile on a cellular network) it should work.
