.boomla.net namespace is our community domain which you can use for free.
Skype is often causing trouble, as it is configured by default to listen for incoming calls on port 80 - which is used for serving websites. Either turn off Skype, or better yet, go to Tools/Options/Advanced/Connection and disable Use port 80 and 443 for additional incoming connections. Restart Skype.
If you are a developer, running any webserver like Apache, make sure to shut it down.
If you want to use the local version while you are offline, you will need to
