    Hi,
    I cant access the www.bcad.org
    I checked if it was the website thats down, but not.
    I checked if it was my connection, reset my router but still the problem was there.
    and plus, only I cant access the website coz my sister's phone can get into it while connected in the same wifi.
    I cant access the website with my laptop and phone.
    I did the CMD, the flushdns, the tracert,the ping, i made a new user account, j cleared the cached and cookies, but nothing succeed.
    I dont know what to do now.
    Pls. help?
    My cousin thinks that maybe my ip address is blocked?

    Then it appears that something on their site is blocking your access. Are you using a VPN or proxy? If so, try without it.

    Yep, VPN's do slow things down.

    Since you're able to get in using a VPN makes it sound like they are indeed blocking your normal IP Address.

    I asked my other friends if they could access the site,
    some of them was able to, and some of them couldnt. some of them can access but not fully.
    Like they can open the home page but when they go to search inside the website itself, its not loading.

    Sounds like a problem the site's IT staff needs to look into.

    So you think it's a problem from their end?

    Can't guarantee a response of course but sure, if they have a "Contact Us" or similar might as well give it a shot.

    Keep in mind that it may well be something else on the path between you and them that is causing the problem.

    If the other people that has tested the site is on the same ISP as you, then the site maybe blocking the ISP, or there is a problem with the connectivity between the ISP and the site.

    Can you go to Command Prompt and type the following command:

    tracert www.bcad.org

    If it shows a lot of timeouts (5+) then do a CRTL+C then copy and paste here.

    The poster has already said they tried a VPN and it was working, but slow. The poster shouldn't require VPN to access this site anyways.
