It seems that you have some cash he problem in your browser… Visiting from my chrome & Samsung browser are fine.

Try using another browser or refresh the page and clear cache (Ctrl + F5 in chrome)

Thank you

After clearing my cache, it’s no longer redirecting, but when I change to https protocol,, it’s still redirecting to

Refresh your cache again…

It’s working in both ways…

(P.S. why not change another browser and try again?)

Thank you

@CarlM24 do you have anything in your /etc/hosts file? On the computer you are visiting it from?

Hi @CarlM24

this is a cache problem of your browser. Calling, I've been redirected to - then, there is no redirect.

P.S. can someone check if the ipv4 version of website is working?

My ISP & mobile network provider both use IPV6 so I can’t see if ipv4 is redirecting…

UPDATE… Nevermind, all domains are pointing to an EU IP (and not located in bluehost’s ASN)

I can only see the site on IPv4, IPv6 doesn't connect for me on 80 or 443 (tested from two locations).

curl -X GET -I -6
curl: (7) Failed to connect to       port 443: No route to host

It appears it was a caching issue.

Sorry for wasting everyones time and thanks for you help, it’s much appreciated :)!

PS: But the website has a lot of mixed content. You should change that.

Chrome - Developer tools - Console or FireFox - Console:,400
