yeah, if your using IE (internet explorer), that could be blocking the website.

heres how check if is in your 'blocked sites' list: open IE, then go to "tools" -> "internet options" -> "security" -> "restricted sites" and click on "sites" then check if it is on the list.

use the run command type in cmd

the dos prompt will popup type in

nslookup websitehere.com

see what output you get

then type in

Ping websitehere.com

if you get a postive reply from ping and nslookup your internet explorer is not to blame ;)
