How to undo a dynamic IP block from failed logins?

I entered the wrong .htaccess password a few times too many and then got locked out. Now, when using my normal IP, I cannot get my page's domain to load at all. I tested the page on two neighboring networks and I am able to access the page fine. I've also since correctly-guessed my .htaccess password and could get into the ACP, but could not find anything about a blocked IP. 

It's been over a couple hours and I still cannot get my page to load. I've tried multiple browsers and even accessing it from a virtual machine, but that's blocked too since it just NIC teams to my host's IP.

In the event that my IP has been locked out by an anti-bruteforcing mechanism which is not undone simply by "waiting it out", how do I restore my IP's access? In case it's relevant I am using IPS' hosted cloud service and so I do not have root server or FTP.

On Chrome the error is: ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT.
