I'm trying to setup my first Wordpress site. For hosting, I have a Combell domain. At school I can access the domain. But when I am working from home, I can't reach the domain.

If I ping the domain, it says "Cannot resolve ... : Unknown host". If I ping the IP address, it is working.

I already tried flushing the DNS cache, but that didn't change anything.

Every device within my home network can't reach the domain. If I use the personal hotspot on my iPhone, it is working. So I'm guessing something's wrong with the DNS from my network.

I use the dynamic DNS from our internet provider.

Can anybody help me out?

    What do you mean by dynamic DNS from your ISP? What does your setup look like?

    The dns adres is the adres I get when I connect to the network. So I mean not static as My setup is a basic home-network setup. The router is protected by the ISP so I can't reach their DNS settings
