Good Day :)

If you website is requesting a username and password when you try and access it.

This means that your website might of been compromised or "hacked" thus we then password protect your website and give you the time to resolve the issue.

You should have a email stating the reason for the authentication access and the steps to resolve it

Once that has been seen to, we will then "unlock" the domain/website
