URL Site Error Code

Access Denied... Error code 16

This request was blocked by the security rules

There is other information such as the IP address of both my ISP and theirs, but this is a site that I could access last night easily and since 1996 when they began, but as of today NADA. It started off with Windows 10 Edge, Firefox, and Chrome all saying "Page can't be found....refresh the page", but now all of them give the same error code listed above.

Something at my end? The site crashed and burned temporarily? Site got hacked? The site shut down for good?

A google search on this error gives some pages in other forums to read, but no solutions or suggestions......
