    Ping doesn't help to identify the website access, I would suggest you to perform a telnet test on the port of website that you specified. Default website shall be using 80/443 and the subsequent sites you create will not be using the same port unless you specify it.

    Maybe try to check what port you're using and try to telnet from internet.
