Bought a domain and it only sometimes works. What am I doing wrong?

16 hours ago I bought a domain from Namecheap and added my custom dns to be the netlify dns’s. It started working within 10 minutes but now I have the problem of it not always connecting and I otherwise get an error.
Site name: https://msumajors.netlify.app/
Domain: https://msumajors.com/

When the domain doesn’t work on my pc in chrome I get the error “ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED”, however, on my phone, it redirects to a Namecheap page saying this is a newly purchased domain. At the start of this post, my domain was getting that error, but right now it just loaded on both devices and now a minute later it’s not working again. What am I doing wrong?

This is likely because DNS records haven’t fully propagated yet. Propagation take time (from minutes, to hours, even a day or two.)
