Cannot access Confluence log in page from all browsers


My name is Virginia Kimani and I'm based in Kenya. We have not had access to Confluence since December 22nd 2019. The link below is how we access the page.

Our URL is

Our domain is

When we try to access the site-we get the message---site cannot be reached.

The following are steps that we have taken to solve the issue.

1. Checked on Internet connection---All other sites are working including jira-accessed byteh following link

2. We currently have a firewall in-place--checked on the policies, no changes have been made.

3. Bypassed Firewall and connected our two internet links to a PC directly. The issue persists

4. Traced the path from our network to the site itself. The results are attached error.PNGtracert.PNG

ISP---Access Kenya

5. Escalated the issue to our ISP's to find out if the site is blocked, and also check if our public IP's have been blacklisted. Our ISP's confirmed that the site is not blocked on their end and our Public IP addresses have not been blacklisted. They asked us to check if the server hosting the atlassian site had blocked our Public IP's ( and

6. We also checked the site itself whether it had been blacklisted and we got the attachement



On relaying this information we got the reponse

he security team has checked the IP and though it's blacklisted shouldn't because of the problem experienced by the customer. This is because the particular blocked IP is used for email and not access site resources.

The Atlassian cloud support representative asked us to generate a har file and sharehar file.PNG


Kindly assist us in resolving the issue.

Hi Virginia!

I understand you're able to access the site using an URL, but you are able to access it directly at

Typically, the * address is what's used to access Confluence, so I'm wondering why you're using the other URL, which appears to be a sign-up link for Confluence.

  • How was the id generated, and why is it being used over the working link?
  • Is the URL used by all users, or are  you using it for a specific purpose (such as to sign up new users)?

Hi Zak,

When I access the site using it redirects me to is a case where you're signing up new users

In a case where the user has an existing account the url, the user is redirected to Jira which works.

When I try switching to Confluence from Jira(  I get a blank page

Hi Virginia,

Just wanted to confirm if you were able to resolve the above issue. I am too facing the exact same issue at my end. Let me know what worked for you.



Hi Raul,

The issue was on the firewall. We upgraded it to a later version

Thanks Virginia!


The issue on my side is that I am not able to access the site with my wifi (i switched to a new ISP) but I am able to access the same website using my mobile hotspot.

So I am not sure how to fix it.

Check with your ISP, if the site has been blacklisted
