I noticed this week that I couldn't connect to my hostizzle. I thought I would investigate this today and found that I couldn't load the hostizzle homepage. However I can connect to the hostizzle site if I use my Tor browser, or an online proxy, or by ultrasurf - so i guess it must be my ISP blocking me?

Is anyone else having this type of problem?

They can't do this, can they?

How do I work around this problem? 

My ISP is Netsmart

Traceroute above. Guess this means it doesn't have anything to do with my ISP?

Looks like an upstream routing issue rather than your ISP blocking the site specifically.

Log a fault with the helpdesk and they will do what they can.
