nopCommerce 4.20 IONOS hosted failing to run scheduled tasks

2 months ago

I've built from source, then uploaded and configured nopCommerce on an IONOS Windows hosting package.

However, it seems that the Keep Alive task is failing to run with a connectivity error shown in logs.

I have verified that the store URL is correct, ( and have tried it as "", plus I've enabled & disabled forced SSL and site SSL, yet the issue persists.

I can manually open "" and get a blank page.

Having searched the forums here and carefully tried answers from similar threads, I've still not be able to resolve the issue.

The "Keep alive" scheduled task failed with the "One or more errors occurred. (A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond)" error (Task type: "Nop.Services.Common.KeepAliveTask, Nop.Services". Store name: "G O A T Vape & Coffee Company". Task run address: "").

Can anyone advise please?
