    Hi everybody. I finally decided to try afternic, and when i go to www.afternic.com, i get the "Access Denied" message, like this:

    "
    Access Denied
    You don't have permission to access "http://www.afternic.com/" on this server.
    "
    Does anybody else have the same problem?

    does not work either on firefox or chrome, but works with tor browser.
    Looks like afternic has banned some parts of the world, russia in particular.

    Try adding an "s" to http (https://www.afternic.com/).

    What country are you in ? I know many software companies in the US will block "enemy" countries.

    Everything is working for me in Canada at Afternic. I normally use Chrome browser, and have never encountered the problem that you mentioned.

    So you get that even before you try to enter your username and pw, or get it after you try to enter your account information?

    This happened to me once

    the solution, for me, was to contact Afternic Support and have them unblock my IP address - was blocked not due to anything I did, but apparently due to activity by someone else who had had my IP address before me.

    Another solution is to change your IP address. Do you know how to do that?

    To test if the IP address is the issue, try logging in with a different device that engages a different IP address, such as a cellular based smart phone.

    May also work in Opera browser in "VPN" mode (as another quick fix).
