Can't access my website!!

  Damo. 19:32 09 Mar 2006

Well, this is a rather strange problem that I can't figure out!

I can't access my website click here at all, In IE I get a page cannot be displayed error, in FireFox i get a connection timed out error, and in opera I get a similar error.

I also can't access the site via FTP. So from this I thought it was a host problem - I've rang them and they've assured me there is nothing wrong with the server and they can get on to the site.

Other members of the site can still get on the site - so why can't i?

I've done all the usual clearing cookies, temp files and cache, but still nothing. I've tried going in via search engines and pages other than the index page, but again nothing.

This is annoying now and i need a quick fix as I have to update the site.

Anyone got any ideas or clues as to what might be wrong? BTW I've also tried disabling AV and Firewalls.

What ISP are you on?

I'm on Homecall Broadband, but have no problems with any other site apart from my own website...I just can't figure it out.

That's a pity , if you were on cable you could have used a proxy to get around it. Anyway go to the command prompt and see if you can ping the site, just type ping then www. then the rest of the address, that will see if the connection is there.
