I can usually access the web site www.mobilebattles.com but recently i get the 403 Forbidden error message.

Apache/2.2.3(CentOS) Port 80.

Is there any way around the ban, as i don't understand proxies, etc.

Have you tried using a different browser?

I can access the site just fine using Firefox.

403 forbidden is shown when the admin of Apache has disabled directory listing for a specific folder. This can be done temporarily during maintenance of a web site. If you see it again and again over many days, then you are trying to access a portion of the site which the admin has forbidden for the outside users who access the web site for some internal reasons.

No, browser has nothing to do with it. This is done on the web server side.
