I used to visit a few sites in different country. But now i have travelled to my home country and saw that domain name is not resolving.

However if I use IP address then I can see the website.

How can I correct the problem?

Do I have to call my ISP?

Set your DNS servers to a publicly available one. Here's a list of Publicly Available DNS Servers.

Try using google's dns - 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

For a test, you can execute the following command

nslookup

server 8.8.8.8

facebook.com

Which country? Does your government require ISPs to filter out certain domain-names?

If so, do the DNS outside your country (VPN systems, etc).
