www.majorgeeks.com - can anybody access it?

I have a number of PC's on my home network - none of which can access www.majorgeeks.com.
However, on one of those PC's, I can connect to my companies VPN and the VPN client tunnels ALL traffic across the VPN. The internet pop for the VPN is in San Jose. On this PC, via the VPN to San Jose, I can access majorgeeks without problem - so why can't I access it via Plusnet? It doesn't seem to be a DNS problem because both VPN and non VPN PC's resolve to the same address: 208.101.7.150.
Thanks,
Creamola.

No problems accessing it here.
You could try rebooting your router which is the only common thing between the PCs.

Re: www.majorgeeks.com - can anybody access it?

I see it OK - using PlusNet's DNS I get:-
jeremy@HECTOR:~$ nslookup -all www.majorgeeks.com
Set options:
  novc                  nodebug        nod2
  search                recurse
  timeout = 0          retry = 3      port = 53
  querytype = A        class = IN
  srchlist =
Server:        212.159.13.49
Address:        212.159.13.49#53
Non-authoritative answer:
www.majorgeeks.com ;     canonical name = majorgeeks.com.
Name:  majorgeeks.com
Address: 208.101.7.150

Re: www.majorgeeks.com - can anybody access it?

weird. I get this:
Server:  ptn-cdns02.plus.net
Address:  212.159.6.10
Name:    majorgeeks.com
Address:  208.101.7.150
Aliases:  www.majorgeeks.com
I need to have a look at the router then...
Thanks,
Creamola.

Which is the same.
Jeremy is using is a linux tool not DOS so the output content will differ.

I know.
Sorry, I meant it was weird that we both get the same results - yet I have no access.

Currently returning a 500 error with the default text of
