All of a sudden, cannot access a certain website on my home network.

Starting this week, on all my internet browsers on any device on my home network, a website i go to a lot cannot be access anymore, even though I know it's still active (checked on smartphone 4g service). Everything else is normal on my pc and every other website can be access. Anyone know what it could be? I turned off my modem and router and back on but still didn't fix issue. Should I consider reset on those devices?

Your IP address is likely blacklisted by the website. Most IP addresses are dynamic, you could have been blacklisted even before you had it.

Sounds like your mom blocked your favorite porn site. Moving out fixes that problem.

Maybe your ISP doesn't want you gambling

Does anyone have access to your router? They could have blocked it. The router itself will remember to block it even if it is restarted.

Sometimes, a router can block an IP for some reason or another. My friend's router did that with my IP when I tried connecting to her Minecraft server. I doubt the website would do anything to cause your router to block it, but that is possible. If you think that might be the case, you could try disabling the firewall to check (and please reenable it quickly afterwards for security reasons and only do this as a last resort).

Doing a full reset on your modem and router might help. Note that doing that will reset everything to factory defaults. You will lose all your settings, including your WiFi settings, on your router.
Sigs are overrated. Seriously.

It really depends on where the block is coming from. To rule out the router you should connect directly to the modem and see what happens. If you still can't get to the website then it's possible that your IP address was blacklisted. Your IP address isn't static, so if you leave the modem unplugged for long enough, your address will go back into the pool and you'll hopefully get a new one when you plug back in. How long this takes I'm not really sure, it probably depends on a number of factors. I know that when I installed a firewall in our house a month ago we got a new address just from being unplugged for a minute or two.
