This problem started a week or so ago. Using different computers (Windows or MAC) I am not able to access the web site www.vibeconference.com which is using IP Address 126.96.36.199 using any of several browsers, Explorer, Firefox, Safari. In addition, I am not able to ping the url or IP address, I just get timeouts.
All of the above occurs when I use a computer connected to my FIOS Service. I can access this url just fine using my Cell Phone which uses Verizon Wireless or my wife's using AT&T Wireless
I have tried using OpenDNS's DNS Servers, same problem. I am baffled by the fact that it only happens with this one web site (that I know of).
I have power cycled my router, checked its settings, no luck.

I do see that I can't access the site directly. If I use a Proxy I can.
They may be using GeoIP blocking
Contact the site owner and/or 1&1 Internet.
That site may be blocking a group of IPs due to a previous hacker. Like Dlipman said contact the site admins and confirm.
OK, I figured out how to use a Free Web Proxy and am able to navigate to the web site. I am still baffled by what is causing the block but I guess that is the hosting companies issue or some issue between them and Verizon. I also left my router off overnight so that I would get a different IP address which I did. So it is not my particular IP address which is getting blocked but probably a range belonging to Verizon.
