Just my 2 cents' worth...
The site is up. It's connecting. But there's nothing THERE. The homepage is blank, or some other failure is happening. I noticed that my own site updated PHP and Wordpress recently, so maybe the host did similarly in this case and something broke?
A very useful tool for such situations is "isitdownrightnow.com". It's a site that checks whether a site is down, or just not working properly. "Down" means that it's unreachable, that the machine it's on is not connected to the internet and can't be reached. I would imagine this tool checks by a number of potential routing paths, to see if it's a local routing issue, a cookie issue on your machine, or the site is actually unreachable by a failure at the source. You can see the test I did here: https://www.isitdownrightnow.com/4sqrp.com.html
I just checked the page source for the blank white page I'm getting. The tab is showing the title of the page, so SOMETHING is connecting. Down at the very bottom of the source is this line:
Could not connect to MySQL: Access denied for user 'dbo344308545'@'220.127.116.11' (using password: YES)
This might be the problem. Something in the MySQL database is falling over, which is preventing the page from loading. This definitely needs to be escalated to the provider, as it looks like something updated or changed at their end that didn't get propagated downward.
