Can you see this website?

http://landmark.test.campuswebstore.mobi/


Is there a way for me to verify that the outside world can see a particular site?

For me to see the above site, I had to manually edit my hosts file like this:

166.70.168.254       landmark.test.campuswebstore.mobi

Why did I have to do this?

It is not accessible via outside you need to point your A record to the box your using to host.

campuswebstore.mobi <-- you need to set the A record to this domain under your domain registrar

Okay...I will look into that.

Now, why did editing my hosts file allow me to see the website?
