    can't access website on home connection but can on mobile broadband

    The weirdest thing - I am setting up a new site and for the first couple of days I could access its URL and ftp up to it (via Filezilla) ok. Then all of a sudden a couple of days ago I couldn't get onto either anymore - thinking the hosting company's server might be down I went on that site "is it just down for me or everyone" -and it told me it was just down for me. I can't get onto the hosting company's site either - and they are (apparently) up and running. So today I turned my wifi off and plugged in my mobile broadband dongle - could access the site, ftp up to it and get to the hosting company no trouble. I really don't get this - does anyone have any suggestions? I tried turning off my Windows firewall but still can't get on. I did a forced refresh and tried in IE and FF but still no joy. I tried "yougetsignal.com" whereby you can see all the other sites on the same server as yours - and discovered that on my home broadband I can't access them either! (or at least the few I tried) What on earth has prevented them coming to my home broadband?

    Sounds like your IP/ISP is blocked by your webhost (or the other way around).

    Would be helpful to know the ISP you're with and the url for your site.

    The site (which is not working yet but at least people who CAN see it get an error message) is www.maharamary.org.uk and it's hosted by veloxserv. I am with BT Broadband.

    Yeah, I get the error message.

    I read before about someone being blocked from Veloxserv.

    Ah here it is!

    Drop them a message, I'm sure they'll be able to sort it out.
