Hi

I am trying to access a website with my PC with no luck.
I tried a different browser and still nothing.
I am getting "This page can’t be displayed"
I tried fix connection problems and I got problems found "your computer appers to be correctly configured but the device or resource is not responding".
I tried to disable the firewall still nothing.
I tried ping to the website an I got "Ping request could not find host"
I tried to use the http://www.who.is/ and I got status Active.

I would like to know who blocked me from access the website?

How to do that?

Thanks

There is no way of knowing externally who has blocked your access to a website if it was done by the websites administrators.

Click on the link below and enter the websites URL to check whether the site is actually down or it is only you having problems accessing it:

Put your firewall back up, taking it down would not help and is dangerous.
It is probably them.
Clear out your cookies and history in your browsers.
Scan with Malwarebytes.
Unplug your modem for a few moments, resetting it and getting assigned a different IP address for it.
Check as above in #1

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

What is this secret website you're trying to visit?

Have you tried the same website on another computer? Maybe there is still something wrong with it and you are not being blocked at all. As per #3, if you let us know the website we can see what happens for us.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Since you apparently don't wanna give us the web address, it must be an unsavory site.

Several possibilities:

1. Something has been put in Hosts files (affects all browsers). To check follow this path and find the Hosts file: C drive > Windows > System32 > drivers > etc. Rename Hosts to XHosts and see if it makes any difference. If not rename it back again. If it does then let us know.

2. The website could be on IE Restricted sites:
IE > Tools > Internet Options > Security > Restricted site icon > Sites button.

3. In 2 above (IE) make sure your security isn't set way too high - most folk use the Default setting. Don't set it below this.

4. You might have some other security program, or even your virus checker, that has some blocking feature (could affect all browsers). Particularly the case if it is an insecure website. A child safety program could do this.

We can only try to help with "what" might be blocking it rather than "who".

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is your smartphone using the same router? If it's too far away from the router it could be using your smartphone's server.

I'm struggling to think of any more reasons for this issue, particularly as it seems to be related to just one website.

Could be parental controls on your modem / router or possibly even at your ISP.

Have you tried using an alternative DNS server?

Did you configure a proxy on your PC?
If ping responds with "could not find host" can be a DNS problem.
If you ping the IP address that you found in the http://www.who.is/ still no response?

The ISP blocking it (re #11) is a very strong possibility especially if it happens to be a dubious website. Many servers do filtering these days. As the phone is on a different server that is unlikely to have the same security arrangements.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
