Hi,

You should allow a few hours for the DNS change to propagate and take effect.
It is also a good idea to clear up your browser's cache and your local DNS cache.

hope this helps

This issue is caused by the SSL installation which requires a DNS change of your domain's A record. Right after the SSL installation you might be still resolving your domain with the old DNS settings. Generally those changes should occur immediately but it is still possible to access your website using cached DNS information. It usually takes some time, maybe a couple of hours and it should work fine.
