Gitlab Pages Website only visible with link

I created a website with Gitlab Pages which was successfully deployed and can be visited when you click on the link under Settings>Pages. However when I try to access the website under the same link otherwise, it gives me a 404 error.

I read through all of the documentations and am really confused. Does this occur because Pages is not configured by an administrator, so I can’t control access options?

The project is created on and I am the owner/maintainer.

Any help would be much appreciated!
