I can't access my websites from my IP in Windows 10 (flushing local DNS helps only temporarily)

by JohnDoea   Last Updated June 24, 2018 11:01 AM

I use Win10 home with either Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge. The operating system and browsers are all up to date.

I host two WordPress websites on a CentOS shared-server on one of the largest hosting companies out there.

I usually SSH into my partition of the shared server via Putty (with pageant).

My problem

For some reason I cannot access any of my websites from either browser under my IP address in Windows 10, unless I flush my local DNS cache in CMD with ipconfig /flushdns and flushing my browser's cache.

but then, after some time, the problem will repeat itself.

This all happens while the websites are fully accessible from any other IP without any problem: No local DNS and/or browser cache flushing.

Further details

As of the moment and just for testing no security plugin (like WordFence or Loginizer) is installed on any website.

The hosting company couldn't track any problem in the server environment; a talented sysadmin of their team, told me that the problem is of my end.

My question

What may be the problem?
