Thanks in advance.

  • Check your host entry in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file and also check IIS for the same. Commented Dec 14, 2020 at 17:12

If you installed the site with SIA, then below can be the possible solutions:

  1. Try running an iisreset in Command Prompt as Administrator.
  2. Check if you are browsing the site with https:// at the beginning of the URL.

Sitecore 9+ by default the sites are secure only. Please try with https://sitecoreinstance93sc.dev.local

Couple of things can be verified with these issues:

  1. Open IIS and right click on the website IIS Configuration

  2. Host Entries open the following file in notepad

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts you should see an entry for sitecoreinstance93sc.dev.local

  1. Check the custom Site definition mostly located in the following path and ensure the hostName attribute C:\inetpub\wwwroot\yoursite\App_Config\Include\SiteDefinition.config
  • Browsing the site with https:// solved my issue.thanks
