    In that case, in seems likely that the web site is not sending a useful response before the connection times out or the route is somehow blocking replies. If so, there's nothing you can do at your end. Do you know anyone who is accessing the site successfully?

    It may be the site is having issues. If you can try another device and the problem still exists then I would wait and try later. If you can connect with the other device then it may be your device has an issue.  Who knows, depending on where you live, some countries will block access to certain sites. If this is a work network then it may be those site are blocked by your network admin.

    I can access the site from a different network. I have checked my firewall settings and whether it was being blocked as well.

    Have you traced the connection attempt?

    If using that site is important, you might want to do more tests to pinpoint the source of the problem.

    When you were able to access the site from a different network, did you use the same device?
    Are other devices on the same network able to access the site?
    Are devices on a different network which uses the same ISP able to access the site?

    How do you trace?

    I was using xfinity hotspot when I accessed the site.
    No device on the network is able to access the site.

    It might differ depending on the operating system of the device, but the command is usually called "tracert" or "traceroute".

    From a command line session or terminal you do something like this:

    tracert www.the-site.com

    This will show you the route to the destination site, which could hopefully tell you where the connection is timing out.

    Unable to resolve target system name is the message I get.

    As you mentioned, if the message shown it seems that, there is a problem with your DNS server (just guess) either an accidental problem due to a mis-configuration of the DNS Server/ an active blocking of the URL that you are trying to access.

    So far you have not told us if this is on a work network or at home.

    The message you get from tracert would appear to indicate a DNS problem, but the message you get from the browser would usually be different if the problem was in fact related to DNS.

    In your original question you said you tried Flushing dns, releasing ip and renewing, so, I understand the device is getting its network configuration via DHCP.

    Then you said you changed DNS.

    How did you do that, and what were the old and new values for the DNS server?

    Also, what device and operating system are we talking about?

    This is a home network. 

    I was previously using auto assigned dns and then switched over to Google's DNS servers

    This issue occurs on all my devices using our home network. I have already stated that I can access the site if I use my ISPs hotspot. 
    OS is windows 10

    You may check your country's foreign policy or how your country manages websites or social medias. Are you using any VPN?
