DOES TIME WARNER BLOCK YOU FROM HOSTING WEBSITES?

hey guys I am trying to host a website on my windows xp system.  it is wirelessly connected to a dlink di-524 router and i have the 80 and 3389 ports forwarded to this computer with a static ip.  I read somewhere that certain providers don't allow web hosting and block port 80.  is time warner one of these groups or is there some other reason my page isn't loading?

1.Please go to www.whatismyip.com and make sure this is how your static ip address is configured in your dlink.Also make sure that you don't have firewall enabled on windows xp.If you do you can make an exception to allow port 80 through.

2.Who is controlling your dns.

3.Do you have your domain name pinted to your ip.
