    unable to connect to one particular web site ...IE11

    unable to connect to one particular website using Windows 8.1 with IE11 or Google Chrome.
    Always get message...."This page can't bedisplayed", then when I check box to fix connection problem
    a dialog box displays message, "The remotedevice or resource won't accept the connection...
    xxx(web site) is not set up to acceptconnections on port 'The World Wide Web Service HTTP'."

    Please note there are no problems using IE11or Google Chrome in connecting to any other site(s) or exploring the internet. I do not have any 3rd party antivirus or malware protection.
    Have tried many different suggestion found in searching the web but no luck yet.

    Any Ideas?

    There's a site that can tell you if its just you or a larger problem for that site;
    Down For Everyone Or Just Me -> Check if your website is down or up?

    Thanks Myhrddin.
    That was among one of the first things I tried.
    I have been able to access the site with another computer not on the wifi network I am using.
