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?

No problem, that's why it only worked on your machine though :)
