Carfax website blocked by comcast

I have been trying to access carfax.com and get the message " blocked by adminstrator".  I have gone thru the access points changing firewall settings. I have even tried accessing carfax from my phone connected to the wifi on xfinity and get the same message.  I can connect to carfax with my phone when I turn off wifi and use the 4g network.  Whats up with comcast blocking carfax?

What administrator?  Are you on a work system or something?  I tried it and it works OK for me too.  If it's from Comcast, you can try calling security, as they deal with blocking issues-----------------

To add, is this just the standard https://www.carfax.com/ site, or were you trying to link to something else, like a login page on the site? That message could be coming from the web site itself and not local if something is messed up. It could even have been a DNS server glitch pointing at the wrong address for awhile.
