Can't access one specific site

How do I refresh someone else's IP? I can't load a specific site I usually access every day when I am connected to my home ISP, although I can get to the site when I'm at work and on my smartphone. Absolutely NONE of my browsers can load the site, even those which I've never uised to visit the site before. When I contacted my ISP tonight, the tech said that he could access the same site from his computer, so it doesn't appear to be a DNS issue there. I have no problems loading any other sites on my browsers. What gives?

I can't successfully ping the site, and when I run tracert, I can get as far as the IP my tech support says is just short of the web site's IP (he can run tracert successfully from his computer all the way to the site, which also loads in his browser). When I emailed the site owner, I was told to refresh the IP. So how do I do that? (Releasing and renewing my own IP obviously isn't the answer).
