Are you behind an HTTP proxy?

Yes, i'm behind proxy. Not sure why it is working from browser and not from Java program. 

Also when i ping from command prompt. It says couldn't find host. 

That's normal for corporate IT policies - your DNS access is restricted.

This works from the browser, because the browser is configured to go though an HTTP proxy (which does the actual name resolution). To make this work in Java you need to configure the same HTTP proxy as in the browser. You can do this from command line or set it programmatically - see here. Another option is to set it directly on the HTTP client you are using to make the HTTP request - check its documentation.
