ok and if you run:

traceroute 203.112.202.195

Does it succeed?

If not then it looks like your DNS sucks. You can run:

gksudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf

add these 2 lines:

nameserver 208.67.220.220
nameserver 208.67.222.222

Save the new file and close gedit, then run:

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

Then try accessing the pages again.

Your current DNS servers do not know the IP of the domain. You simply added another DNS server (OpenDNS) which knows the IP adress so you can then connect.
