    Default Cannot Access a Website

    Hi! Why am I unable to access psychologytoday.com site on my internet browsers? I receive a message 403 Forbidden: You don't have permission to access /intl on this server.
    Thanks,
    Rashid

    Ask the website owners - sounds like a problem on their end.

    But my friend can access the pages on his mobile browser. I once used Hola extension on Chrome. Do you think it has anything to do with it? How can I undo it?

    I can see it.
    Disable your extensions and see if it fixes the issue.

    I removed the extension already but still receive the same message of 403 Forbidden. Is it possible that the website has blocked my IP address on suspicion after use of Hola VPN?

    Just tried it, loaded fine. As for the VPN - if you were using a VPN then that has a totally different IP Address as well as country.
    A standard Connection (no VPN) will be different. That's the one reason behind a VPN, shows at the server as a different location to where you actually are.

    If its only that site, then you need to ask their website admins
    They could be blocking your IP for some reason

    Or the shortcut/bookmark you use no longer works
    try this link , it works here

    Download a portable browser and try using it to get to the address, that will tell you whether it is the browser you are using or something on your computer like Hosts file stopping your access.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    No luck Here is the host file text:

    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
    # 127.0.0.1 localhost
    # ::1 localhost
    127.0.0.1 idb.iobit.com
    127.0.0.1 asc55.iobit.com
    127.0.0.1 is360.iobit.com
    127.0.0.1 asc.iobit.com
