New install, can't see my website

Installed fresh brave on new computer.
Then I go to my website, and it doesn’t show anything:

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Install Brave Version 1.10.97 Chromium: 83.0.4103.116 (Official Build) (64-bit)

  2. Go to

  3. I get this error: " This site can’t be reached refused to connect."

Expected result:
The expected result is that the website shows on brave, like it does in Chrome, Firefox, IE, Etc.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.10.97 Chromium: 83.0.4103.116

Additional Information:

Your site loads for me without issue on both Windows 10 and macOS. I know you said you have a “fresh” install, but can you confirm that you haven’t downloaded any extensions at this point? Additionally, does the website load when viewed in a private window?

Here is my view using chrome and brave (private brave window)
It still doesnt seem to show up, not sure why.

Do you have any extensions installed in the browser? Are you connected to a VPN at this time? Are you using Windows 10 or Windows 7? Are there any other sites that don’t load or is it just this one?

I had lastpass and brainbucketextensions, but I disabled them and it still doesnt look work.

No VPN, Windows 10 Pro.

Other sites seem to load. Thats why I found it so odd.

I see what happened…

apparently there was a DNS issue and I had to flush DNS and cache on the windows machine.

You can close this one, Brave is working now.


Glad to hear it! Good detective work. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions.
