I've been trying to get on to a client's website at but for some odd reason it's returning an empty page.


I've tried two machines and three browsers, temporarily switched off the PiHole, VPNd into an AU exit point, even tried pulling the home page with WGET, but all return an empty file.


The site owner insists it's workiing for them, and says it's 'just you'.


Any ideas, anyone?

Doesn't work for me, doesn't work with Tunnel Bear via Australia or USA.


There's a multitude of websites that check if a site is up or down. Most are saying the site is up, but two say it is down:




DNS issue?

Just a white page for me too.


I see the host is, maybe contact them about it? will say it is working because there's no error when you try and access the website, even when using www and https.

I don't think so as you are getting to the site, and if you use https you get the correct cert for the site.


It's just a blank page.




Edit: Actually on further inspection the SSL cert is actually for!


Looks like a hosting issue.

Thanks everyone. At least it's not me going mad by myself.
