DNS Resolution

Heyas,

I can't get this website from my network but a college can get it from his network both on different ISP's. The website is nces.ed.gov below is nslookup.

 couldn't get address for 'eduftcdnsp01.ed.gov': failure

My question is this website resolving correctly or is there an issue with it's DNS records.

Can you get to site using IP Address... 165.224.212.85
