Why is this website blocked in my home but not others?

If I try and load www.magazinesubscription.co.uk using my laptop or iphone via my bt hub, it won't load, yet it will if I use my neighbours wirless connection.  any ideas?

 

I've reset my bt hub too

Hi. Welcome to the forums.

 

No problems for me accessing the site.

 

When you say you've reset the hub, is that doing a complete power cycle or just pressing a button ?

Hi, apprently I've been told the below,

 

Ok I am on BT and I turned off googles public DNS and it stopped working. 
Its a BT DNS issue though other providers who use BTs DNS will also break.
