Rule 1 that everyone seems to forget: *FIRST* the DNS lookup, *THEN* routing to host IP, *THEN* HTTP(/s) socket connect, *THEN* your website config/content kicks in.
Otherwise you'll be wondering why nothing works the way you expect. It's always fun when people forget to renew their domain then wonder why their site stops working.
