403 Permission Error. IP address blocked. Cannot access Cosmotown.com

If you are receiving a 403 Permission error notice when attempting to access Cosmotown.com, don’t worry this is an enhanced security measure.  End users are blocked access after more than 3 failed log in attempts. Here are the options to get you back into your account.

 

EMAIL CUSTOMER SUPPORT: If you receive the subject message, please email support@cosmotown.com, with your IP address (you can Google what's my ip address). We will remove the block and then advise when it is complete via email. 

 

DELETE YOUR INTERNET CACHE, OR USE A DIFFERENT INTERNET BROWSER: After the block is removed, you may have to delete your internet browser cache. Otherwise, you may access a cached version of the site, and receive the same error.  A quick workaround, is after you receive our update that the block is removed, access the site via a different internet browser.

YOU MAY NEED TO RESET YOUR PASSWORD: For existing customers who are visiting the new website platform, for the first time after its release on 1/19/14, you must also reset your password, from your previous Cosmotown.com password.  This is why the log in attempt failed initially.  We did not import previously passwords into the new system, as that would be a security breach.  We notified exiting customers of this change via email, multiple times, prior to change to the new system.
