Why did my site, all of the sudden start showing, "501 Method Not Implemented" , and now won't open?

GET to / not supported.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Thank you for your question namaste?

Sorry for the trouble with the 501 error. 501 errors occur when the browser is trying to request method from the server that the server does not support. Please see the following link.

<a href="" rev="nofollow" target="_blank"></a>

This can be caused by the browser caching a bad URL. Try clearing your browser cache.

<a href="" target="_blank">How to clear your browser's cache</a>

If clearing the browser cache does not work, you will need to check the website code to see if the website is trying to serve unsupported requests. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Take Care!
