Can't access fast.ai

I’m in Brazil and been trying to check out fast.ai for over a month now, but any page under this domain times out for me, other than this forum…

I’ve also tried via my (American) company’s VPN but got no luck. Any help?

Hi bwdm
You have made a post in forums.fast.ai successfully. What happens if you try explicitly https://www.fast.ai/
I wonder if your company is using a product which examines the url contents…
Can you try these commands from a CMD box
C:\Users\conwy>nslookup forums.fast.ai
Server: bthub.home
Address: fe80::1a82:8cff:fe9e:c090

It seems to be hiding behind cloudflare. Try https://www.nslookup.io for fast.ai and see if it is blocked.
Also try from a non-company PC.

I’ve been trying on both my personal laptop and phone for quite some time as well. My boss who lives in California is the one told me about fast.ai and he can access it fine.

Trying https://www.fast.ai/ results in the browser loading for a few minutes and then it times out:

This is my nslookup output on my personal laptop
