Can't access one website?

The website is www.verpets.com

It is the only website I cannot access. I figured it was down but other people can access it just fine. I have tried Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. None of them could find the web address. I tried this guide here: http://www.4creatingawebsite.com/cant-access-websi... but I was still not able to access the website. Any suggestions? My OS is Windows 7.

Update:

I have a wireless router connected to my modem. The website did not come up with the address.

    Try to access the website by its IP address, which is: 64.31.42.162

    Enter it into your browser like: http://64.31.42.162

    If it comes up, then you have an issue with DNS. The first thing to do is to flush your DNS cache. Open a command prompt window (hit the start button and then type CMD in the little search field at the bottom). Once that window is open, type the following command: ipconfig /flushdns

    That will flush your DNS cache and force it to reload from whichever nameserver is provided by your ISP.

    If the site does NOT come up, but you are able to access all other websites, then there is a routing issue either with your network or with your ISP (possible, but unlikely). You didn't indicate if you have a computer hooked directly into a modem, or if you have a home network, etc. If you are plugged directly into a modem, then call your ISP to get this resolved. If you are part of a network that someone else is responsible for, you'll need to get with them.
