Can't access a website on my wifi - works through 4G and other wifi

Hi. Please help me. Virgin says it is nothing to do with them. 

I am building a website. I get to the login page for the website and it comes up with 403 error. 

I have spoken to the hosting co SiteGround and they can't see a problem. 

I have accessed the site through proxy and 4G and my neighbours wifi but I can't get onto it through my wifi. 

Virgin says it is nothing to do with them. Please help me!

Change the Domain Name Server (DNS) in your router to 8.8.8.8

Your regular DNS may be lagging behind by a few hours.

It isn't anything like that.

When a new URL is introduced into the internet system it is given a numerical IP address, that address is registered and stored by Domain Name Servers that check for new URLs / IPs frequently but are not instantaeneous.

Have you tried the DNS change?
