Instant Articles is a new way for any publisher to create fast, interactive articles on Facebook. But not all websites are eligible for the same. You may check if your website is eligible for Facebook Instant Articles if you’ve got an eligible Facebook page. Yes, you heard it right. You need two things viz. an eligible website and an eligible Facebook Page.
How to check website’s eligibility for Facebook Instant Articles?

The next step is to go to Publishing Tools section of your Facebook Page. Then go to Configuration under Instant Articles option in the left menu. Scroll down to Tools section and click on Connect your site.
Enter your domain name without http:// or https:// and click Submit URL. If you get any error, your website is not eligible for Facebook Instant Articles. Registering example.com includes the root example.com, subdomains with prefixes like brand.domain.com, as well as paths delineated by forward slashes, such as example.com/path or subdomain.example.com/path.

How to Fix You’ve Lost Access To Instant Articles
You may refer to Facebook Instant Article Policy to know more about the issue. But there are mainly two issues viz. Traffic or Content. What I mean is either your Facebook page doesn’t generate much traffic to your website or your website content doesn’t comply with the Facebook Policy.
