I need to open a website "" , which is opening everywhere in world, but not with me. it shows a 404 page not found error and this is the content of the Cache, when i debugeed the http response:

Data Size   1206
Device  disk
Expires Thu Jan 01 1970 05:00:00 GMT+0500 (KART)
Fetch Count 8

Can it be due to the fact that a cached page is being requested to me? in my path towards this site? Some router in my way is caching this page? FYI, i do not have a cache proxy server atleast on my gatway, not sure if it is present after it.

Is it possible that i can Force my browser to not to fect the cached copy?

If all you need to do is open the page and not actually solve the problem of why you can't open the page, pick an open proxy and use that or use lynx from one of your servers. – Ladadadada Mar 22 '12 at 8:13

You should be able to use Shift + F5 to force a refresh.

Also, make sure that the site is resolving to the same IP on your system as it is on others.

Already tried many times with Shit+F5 , on different browsers, not working. The site's IP is indeed resolvable. – Farhan Mar 22 '12 at 8:04
Does it resolve to the same IP everywhere? Non-authoritative answer: Name: Address: Aliases: – DerekC Mar 22 '12 at 8:09
Yes, its same everywhere – Farhan Mar 22 '12 at 8:14
I guess you could try to use a public proxy server as @Ladadadada has mentioned. If that works then it could be your ISP? – DerekC Mar 22 '12 at 10:00
