createaforum.com blocked?

Added it to my whitelist in NextDNS and while it loaded once, now I get: "Connection Problems - Sorry, Create A Forum was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later."

My analytics and logs are empty (new user on free tier).

Will raise it with the forum's admin also in case it's their end.

    You can test this at this URL:

    https://www.createaforum.com/directory.php

    It'll throw the error:

    "This page isn’t workingwww.createaforum.com is currently unable to handle this request.

    HTTP ERROR 500"

    A 500 is unrelated to DNS blocking. Please contact the website admin.

    I am concluding the same after reverting my router's DNS to 8.8.8.8, rebooting it and then trying 2 different mobile data hotspot sources also. The coincidence factor though is ridiculous. I enabled NextDNS for the first time ever and the very next attempt to access that forum - which had been up 20 mins prior - and it was appearing to be down. That forum only goes down once per year or so.

    It turned out to be a common or garden site down that coincided with me enabling NextDNS.
