I am greeted with: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
The webserver is returning the 403 HTTP error. You will need to look into its error log to see why it displayed that error. Could be your IP is blacklisted for something.

"This indicates a fundamental access problem, which may be difficult to resolve because the HTTP protocol allows the Web server to give this response without providing any reason at all. So the 403 error is equivalent to a blanket 'NO' by the Web server - with no further discussion allowed."
