I have some problem for quite some time in Ubuntu connecting to particular sites like:

http://www.thedailystar.net/

http://www.ixwebhosting.com/

I have tried various browsers, like Firefox, Chrome, Midori... none of them can load those websites. I am including my ifconfig and ping of the site. It will be great help if someone can give me the solution to the problem.

Neither of those websites are actually online. See here. –  Dillmo Jan 18 at 18:03
    
oh here they're running fine.. tried in IsItDownRightNow.com ..they're UP and reachable. –  precise Jan 18 at 18:16
    
maybe you'd want to try a proxy server to visit those sites.. –  precise Jan 18 at 18:21
    
thank you, tor browser actually fixed the problem, i had. –  rashed azad Jan 19 at 14:21
    
Does your country filter the internet? –  mcantsin Jan 21 at 15:34

ixwebhosting.com returned the same IP.

dailystar.net for me was 149.126.77.234, which differs from yours.

You could be sensored to certain websites by your ISP, or by your country. Try accessing the above sites through one of the web proxy sites below.

webproxy.net

hidemyass.com

If you can get to the websites that way, you can google for a good proxy server. Then go to network settings in your ubuntu and manually add the proxy IP and Port.

With this setting, all of your browsers will go through the proxy.

Otherwise, you can do what I do. Just set the proxy in Firefox, then use Chromium for non proxy connection.
