Checking firewall & antivirus settings:

Firewall and antivirus regularly appear to impede a few sites when they have a question mark on the validity of the site. The firewall opposes the association with the worker and doesn’t let you access the website page. It helps in shielding your system from the destructive records. On the off chance that you realize that the site is sheltered, at that point you can kill the firewall and access the site. Furthermore, it is a similar case with the antivirus as you can uninstall the product to get to the site. You are prescribed to turn on the firewall and antivirus after your work is finished. Something else, your system will be in danger.
