Hi, some oversea network might prevent from accessing Quantnet.com, or slow down.
Here is my solution, I highly recommend : open chrome://net-internals/#hsts in Chrome. Under "Add HSTS/PKP domain" ->"Input a domain name to add it to the HSTS/PKP set:" ->"Domain:" and a box. In this case, we put "quantnet.com" in the box. And restart your Chrome.
Besides, there is another solution, which would prevent from creating thread, or other plug-in for typing on Quantnet: go to the folder"/etc/hosts ", add "108.61.137.10 dyylbw1p4yd4h.cloudfront.net" at the end of the "hosts".

I'm glad that you resolved your issue and found something that works for you but I'm not entirely positive that we know the root cause of your issue.

I'm not sure what the issue is and when you experience this issue.
Adding the ip and hostname only helps when your computer and your ISP's DNS servers can't resolve the ip address of quantnet.com
In any case, try to remove that line from your host file, do a dns flush and restart your laptop.
You can open a terminal and try to do a "ping quantnet.com", if it resolves to that 108.61.137.10 address, then your computer can see the website.

If you must use the host file, then add
108.61.137.10 quantnet.com

dyylbw1p4yd4h.cloudfront.net is not our hostname, it's the CDN server that serves static files.
