Hello, and sorry for our delayed response to your question. I was unable to find any WordPress installations on your account with us that were encountering 401 errors. Although the logs are only showing today so I apologize if it had been happening to your earlier. It looks like you haven't yet pointed your domain name to our name servers, so currently the website is being pulled from your old web-host. Typically a 401 authentication error is going to come if you have setup WordPress password protection or any other type of .htaccess password protection on your website. Please let us know if you had any further questions at all! - Jacob
