Why are websites blocked?

Trying to go to a website, and some times it will work and some times it will not. It's a legit, clean site, so idk why it is blocked

The site is:
»www.ftazeta.com

Is there a reason or is it on my end?

I can get to it fine from my Start connection at home, but I use Google DNS.

Hehe, FTA, oh how I miss thee.

If you can get to it sometimes, odds are it isn't blocked.

I can reach it via Start DSL, using Start DSL's auto-assigned DNS servers.

*** edit... I THINK I WAS WRONG! I was apparently being re-directed to some index page (by parkingcrew?) ***

But, I didn't get an error, and I had no idea what that page should look like! Address bar said www.ftazeta.com...

I later tried google's DNS, and got a completely different page.

So, who re-directed me? I could see that happening on OPEN_DNS, but using Start's DSL DNS?
(man... I thought I at least partially understood some of this DNS stuff!)

Try Google DNS instead? 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

I'll see if it's my anti-virus (Kaspersky IS) blocking it.

The interesting part is that some times I can get into it with no problems, and other times it doesn't

Nope not Kaspersky, so I tried what Gone suggested and now it works....

Thanks Gone

What DNS were you originally using? Cable or DSL?

Was using Teksavvy DSL, now using Start Cable. Didn't have any DNS entered before, now have 8.8.8.8 entered and it seems to be working.

Blocked for me, but I think that is for a different reason.

Real Site?
kcorscadden... Just to confirm, is this the real site you wanted?

Because... earlier today, the Start DSL DNS system took me there; different than back on Nov. 12.

Tonight, Start DSL DNS takes me to the other site (search/index site). This flip/flopping is what you encountered before, I guess.

Strange! I'm probably going back to google's DNS, just for some consistency.

BTW, and FYI, back on Nov. 12, OPEN DNS also took me to the wrong site. TSI had a DNS puzzle similar to this 2 or 3 weeks ago on their forum.

Is there an easy, short explanation?

This seems like it could be quite ripe for abuse (site hijacking)! Or is this just the nature of the DNS system?

...so their name servers, googles and ours all show 79.142.72.93 for the IP, for both of their name servers (a no-no) as well as their web site. I'm guessing this is a site that is bouncing around between providers or undergoing some other change.
