All my computers will not load 1 website.

Specs: Windows XP
Iv been trying to get this back working on my own and done everything I could think of and find on the internet to do and am at a loss. I visited this website almost everyday and never had problems, now I usually get errors after the first page then an't get it up at all for awhile. I haven't been able to do anything on the forum for some time now. I will try to click on a forum or post or anything and depending on which browser I use they are different but internet explorer for example says ''Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage'' other ones display different network connection errors. All other websites are working fine and the website seems to work for other people. I tried checking all my security (F-Secure), router (even directly connecting with out using the router didn't work), my ISP(dish satellite), registry, DNScache flush, temp files, different computers, different browsers, using links to get there, using the IP address just brings up some apache page thing, everything I could find through internet searches but nothing has worked. :(

The only change I can think of is that it seems to have started when the forum changed there layout or skin which I'm not sure it has anything to do with it (how could it?) but I never had problems before.

I figured after trying so many things without success I should see if anyone more knowledgable had any suggestions.

Oh and if it's needed the website/forum is

All of that looks good and you have access to the site, at least that's what these utilities tell us.

what nsk is talking about [and its the next place we are going to look] is go here
open the hosts file [should have no extension] and look for this line

If you find it delete just this line, save the file and reboot.

Sometimes antispyware adds an entry to deny access to this web site as a protection against spyware.

Thank you, I got there and it asked me what to open ''hosts'' with and I said notepad and it said this...

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host localhost

I'm pretty sure I went to the right one.... ?


Ok, I found out a way to at least get on the site a little. By using an anonymous proxy. I tried this because I read somewhere that my IP addess might have changed to one that the website is blocking or something...I honestly don't know but I'm actually managing to do a couple things there at the moment....though I get some errors and not everything is working perfectly I'm at least getting around a little...

What would this mean exactly, is there something I can do to fix it or do I have to use a ''web based anonymous proxy site''..?

Your HOSTS file looks great. Based on the information, it sounds like the site blocked you, or at least the IP address you're using. If you can access the site using a proxy, try contacting their site administrator.

You can also try doing a power cycle on your home network. This may give your router an opportunity to get a new IP address from your ISP. Disconnect computers from the router (wired & wireless), then unplug the router, then unplug the modem. Wait a minute or two, and follow those steps backwards. Unfortunately, this doesn't always work on satellite connections, at least for me.

In the future, you can use a tool like to see if the website you're having trouble with is down completely, or if it's a problem between you and your ISP. If it fails to connect to the target site multiple times, it's likely not the target site's problem.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.

BettaBaby, just FYI FWIW, I went to the betafish site with no problem. Possible your ISP's blocking? Maybe you need to specifically allow the site in your firewall?

Thanks everyone. I knew it had to be something on my end because others were using it ok. The proxy sites work ok, they don't always work though.... but I can get around a bit. I'll try the power cycle again....any other suggestions? If I have to use a proxy site what is the best one?? Most the ones Iv run into on google will work a little but not on other things....anyone have a better solution??

Try the IP address instead of the URL.

When I do that (use IP instead of name) I get a page that says this....

''Great Success !
Apache is working on your cPanel® and WHM™ Server

If you can see this page, then the people who manage this server have installed cPanel and WebHost Manager (WHM) which use the Apache Web server software and the Apache Interface to OpenSSL (mod_ssl) successfully. They now have to add content to this directory and replace this placeholder page, or else point the server at their real content.

If you are seeing this page instead of the site you expected, please contact the administrator of the site involved. (Try sending an email to <webmaster@domain>.) Although this site is running cPanel, WebHost Manager, and Apache software it almost certainly has no other connection to cPanel Inc. or the Apache Group.
