Edit: I just as of the time of this edit have tried to go onto the site and it works now. I know that means my issue is resolved but it would still be nice to know what might have gone wrong that caused this issue. I did not change anything it just all of a sudden worked again, it just isn't making much sense to me.

I for some reason can't connect to my own website. I was on it 20 minutes ago and it was working fine, then I go to load up another page and boom I get the Chrome Error Message:

Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to sitexyz@xyz.com

I have confirmed that other users can connect to it and I have been able to connect to it via proxy.

I have checked the .htaacess and my ip is not blocked. I have checked my cpanel and, my ip is not blocked. I have tried to flush my dns to see if that would help. I also tried clearing my cache just in case.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what might the issue be?

Regards, Fogest

Have you tried other browsers? –  toomanyairmiles Feb 2 '12 at 7:06
    
@toomanyairmiles Yes same issue I still can't connect. –  Fogest Feb 2 '12 at 13:33
    
Have you contacted your isp's support to check that they haven't blocked your ip. I've had this happen to me. Also try getting a new IP from your ISP... –  toomanyairmiles Feb 2 '12 at 13:37
    
@toomanyairmiles I don't understand what would have been blocked? I don't see why my ip would be blocked. –  Fogest Feb 2 '12 at 14:07
    
In my case I suspect it was using a crawler to look for broken links, but my hosting provider were not very helpful about it. Most ISP's (those who supply your home internet connection) will be able to describe a procedure that will get you a new IP - that's the only thing I can see that would cause this kind of thing. –  toomanyairmiles Feb 2 '12 at 16:15

I had a similar problem several years ago where I used a full url for my PHP includes, and it was triggering the server firewall. It only blocked me, and was especially problematic when I was trying to run a sitemap tool.

This actually could be why. I was actually editing a Wiki page on the site when this happened. When installing MediaWiki it told me about some issue that involved PHP. I hope it was a one time issue. –  Fogest Feb 2 '12 at 23:20
    
I just got the issue again! So I guess this is not resolved. I never even went to the wiki but I guess that means something in general is wrong. Is there anyway to fix this or is it just the host? –  Fogest Feb 3 '12 at 5:53
