I recently registered the domain politicsapp.us with GoDaddy and I am trying to set up a server on my local machine with WampServer. I set it all up, but when i type that into a browser, it gives me ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

I first tried to ping the URL and got the following response

C:\Users\Admin>ping politicsapp.us

Pinging politicsapp.us [71.228.29.37] with 32 bytes of data:

So ping works. And the domain is pointing to the right place. I checked my router and port 80 is in fact forwarding to this machine. But PortChecker is telling me that my port is closed. I have added a rule to allow all incoming port 80 connections in Windows Firewall.

What's the problem?

Edit

%SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

and replace

::1 localhost

with

127.0.0.1 localhost

Save and restart apache. Hope it will work .
