Can not acess website, is it blocked?

Hi all, maybe off topic, if it is then please advise correct forum. I cannot access  www.planespotters.net  for some reason. Have Virgin BLOCKED this web site? if so why??. I have tried different browsers, different machines, direct connection to the modem, through wi-fi and also on Android but no luck. Using Mountail Lion 10.8.

All my other friends that use it have no problem,straight in. It looks like its down to Virgin . Have checked settings and all seems ok, one day it worked, next day nothing. If Virgin have blocked it PLEASE UNBLOCK. ANY help would be gratefully received.
Regards, Roger

Hi southcoast69, 

 

Thanks for your post, I can't see anything that can be causing this at the moment. I'm able to get on to the website from here. 

 

Are you still having trouble with this, maybe they had temporary maintenance?

 

Keep us posted. 

 

Thanks

 

Emma

Why is it that when someone can't get onto a site the first thing they say is this?  VM are not in the business of deliberately blocking random websites.

 

I can get in from my connection, although I had to delete an extra space in your link that chrome picked up :smileyfrustrated:

 

At this stage I'd guess one of three things.

  1. Temporary outage - now fixed
  2. Routing issue from your connection - post a traceroute as suggested above.
  3. Site itself is blocking your IP

Posting the traceroute will enable us to work out which.
