I cannot access www.besttechie.net

I'm lost and I will list out what I have tried so far:

1. Checked the router settings, everything is fine there
2. Tried clearing the cache, still can't access
3. Thought the problem is with my ISP but I asked another guy who has the same ISP as me, he could access the site
4. When I ping besttechie.net all packets are recieved
5. Here's the tracert log
6. Tried both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox
7. When I put in the IP instead of the name of the site, I get this And when I click on any link, it doesn't work
8. I thought it might be something in the hosts file. So I opened it and found no traces of besttechie there. I also "disabled" the HOSTS file (I use both mvphosts and spybot's immunize function) but to no avail
9. With using a proxy site (www.hidemyass.com) I can access the web site
10. I'm 99% sure I'm clean of malware

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
