Try typing the full URL (complete with domain) into the location box of your browser and see what happens.

Is the Mac not finding any internet web sites, or is it having problems only with your local web site? What is the Mac using for its DNS server? What are the Ethernet settings in the Network Prefs panel?

I was thinking it was a dns thing. It finds every site it likes except this one that belongs to them

Its DHCP into a netgear router and I have reset the router etc etc,

its v strange

Is the URL for their web site just a local URL for an intraweb, or is it accessible from the internet at large? Are their PC's set up to pick up the DNS from a local DNS server rather than from their ISP's DNS server.

On the Mac, try entering the following from the Terminal:

lookupd -flushcache

The terminal is a application found in Applications:Utilities at the root of the hard drive. Basically it is the same as the command prompt in Windows, but will run most Unix commands, rather than DOS commands.

Also, is the Mac set to DHCP in the Network Prefs Pane? (Pull down the Apple Menu to Preferences, select the Network Prefs Pane and check the TCP/IP settings under the Ethernet tab.

You could also try pinging the web site (using both the URL and the correct IP address) from terminal and run a tracert.
