I am using some web hosting provider (Windows, IIS, ASP.NET). My site worked good. One day I got an error "You are not authorized to view this page. HTTP Error 401.3 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to an ACL set on the requested resource." when I tried just access my site. So I had to input login and password to access my home page.

Has anyone ever got so error? I am appreciated to get any help.

Configuration: Windows 2003 Server Enterprise IIS 6.0

My domain was still pointing to the old server. Hence I was not able to access the website. It has pointed to the new server and now it is working!
