Can't access particular website(s)

  1. I've been having an incredibly strange and annoying problem recently. I can't seem to access my web design portfolio website, nor a few select others. All I get it a connection timed out error. All other websites seem to load fine and with quick succession.

    The websites I am trying to load are and

    I have tried the following to solve the issue/find the solution:

    - Clearing Browser Cache and cookies, Trying in different browsers
    - Disabling my firewall
    - Restarting my computer
    - Trying in different computers around the household, as well as my ipod touch
    - Disconnecting and reconnecting my router
    - Resetting my router
    - Using opendns to change dns server settings
    - Asking my ISP (BE Broadband), manually changing the DNS settings of the router using telnet
    - Completely moving host and propagating my domain name to that host

    Right now, the only way I can gain access is by:

    - Using a proxy
    - Using a computer outside of my house

    But as you know, using a proxy has lots of limitations and annoyances unless you pay for a good server, so it's basically a no-go. What makes this so annoying is that it just seemed to start happening randomly off-the-bat a couple of days ago.

    What on earth could the problem be? I honestly have no idea, after trying all that I've done. Please help!
