Could just be the website playing up - this sometimes happens. It might get fixed and suddenly start working again. Have you tried from another computer (a friend's perhaps)?

If you have only one browser you could temporarily install another, such as Firefox. This would prove whether it was a browser issue or not.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Lots of reasons. Are you connecting through your own personal internet connection or through a work/school network. Access to that kind of thing may be blocked. The host website may also have blocked your IP if they have previously had rule breeches detected from your location. Your own firewall settings might be interfering. Do you connect through a router? sometimes settings in the router can interfere or you may need to port forward to establish proper connection.
