Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am trying to access a website, but I'm unable to with any browser or even FTP. Everyone else that I have asked can connect to it.

I have tried scanning for malware and clearing my cookies. This is the error I get when attempting to connect to it through telnet:

Connecting to 46kw.furious-servers.com... Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed

I tried connecting to the same site on the same network with my phone, but it didn't work.

This is really annoying and I'd like to get it fixed.

What's going on here?

What security software do you have installed? The website contains no files. If this is website your hosting within your own network use to connect to it. –  Ramhound Jul 21 '13 at 4:16
HTTP is port 80, telnet is normally port 23. You are using telnet to connect to its standard port, 23, which says nothing about connectivity to port 80. Try connecting to it on port 80 instead and report on the results of that. telnet 46kw.furious-servers.com 80 –  Michael Kjörling Jul 21 '13 at 12:10
Nope connecting to port 80 did not work. I have Kaspersky pure 3.0 installed with malewarebytes. –  Godz Jul 21 '13 at 17:00
And it's not hosting within my website. –  Godz Jul 21 '13 at 17:19

Considering you have a very basic setup - This could possibly be an issue from the Internet Service Provider's(ISP's) end.

Assuming that you have already rebooted your router and checked with different DNS servers. I would recommend you to contact your Service Provider and ask them to change your profile or DLM manually and then you can reboot your router to check if the website opens. These issue's can also be caused if you have a static IP so you might consider asking your ISP to either allocate a new IP or to simply change it to dynamic for testing purpose to see if your website opens.
