2 sites that I always go to are not working all of a sudden

December 16, 2011 at 12:25:53
Specs: Windows Vista
I have: Chrome, Firefox, and internet explorer. The Main browser I use is Chrome, not recently but a little while a go, two sites that I would go to ALL of the time suddenly stopped working for me, so I asked a question on yahoo answers before, asking if the websites sites were working for anyone else, they all said the sites were working perfectly for them! Then someone gave me a link to a website called "Down for everyone or just me?" I typed in the two websites I've been trying to access in the search bar and sure enough it said "It's just you, the website is up"

When I try to load these pages on google chrome, I get an error message exactly like this:

"Oops! Google Chrome could not find kanji.koohii.com
Try reloading: kanji.­koohii.­com

Additional suggestions:
Access a cached copy of kanji.­koohii.­com
Search on Google:"

Here's the other site:

"Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.guidetojapanese.org
Try reloading: www.­guidetojapanese.­org

Additional suggestions:
Access a cached copy of www.­guidetojapanese.­org
Search on Google:"
I also get an error message from firefox! The same error for both sites, Exactly like this:

Server not found

Firefox can't find the server at kanji.koohii.com.

Check the address for typing errors such as
ww.example.com instead of
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I know I'm typing these sites correctly as I've typed them in like a thousand times before! Is there anyone out there that can tell me what the hell is going on with my sites? The sites obviously work! I need these sites to work for me! I'm trying to learn Japanese and these sites are essential. :(

Additional info:
I recently restored my computer to factory settings (these two website problems started happening before I reset to factory settings mind you) afterward I reset to factory settings, the websites Still aren't working!

I have 60 days of Norton Anti virus protection (came with the factory restore), recently scanned, so I know I don't have any viruses.

I'm using an HP laptop. Running Vista Home premium.

The HP desktop computer running windows 7, with windows or microsoft security essentials (whichever it's supposed to be) won't load these two sites either.

All other sites work perfectly, there are no other sites that I know of yet, that aren't working for me except for these two websites.

I've tried firefox and even internet explorer, still nothing with these two sites.

And I think that's about it, someone please get back to me as quickly as possible! This totally sucks :\

In 2 days no one has replied.
Probably because there doesn't seem to be a reasonable explanation for it.

There are 2 options, Either your router is blocking that website.
Or you have been blocked from that website for some reason.

The 2nd one I highly doubt, although there's a possibility.
The only way your router would block that site is if someone manually blocked it, and if your router even supports it. But I don't see why.

I honestly don't know how to help you, if it's not your PC due to the factory restore, It has to be externally somehow.
You should try phoning your ISP up and explain the problem to them, they may be able to figure it out if it's their end.
