If you try that today it should return 404, but instead will time out.

You can use this to help debug the connection

@MikeMcQ Thanks for the info! This process is making much more sense. I can hit the IP address of the server but not with the domain name. That must be the root of the problem then. I will fix that and hopefully everything works!
