Connection refused: homeshop18.com:80

I get the above message when I try to get through to http://homeshop18.com. Could anyone tell what's going on? I tried to make sense of the solution provided in this thread, but unfortunately I couldn't decipher it. So I have to ask it again.

I could access that website until only a few hours ago. Then suddenly I started getting that message. There isn't an issue when I use Firefox but when I try to connect using OPERA, it just refuses to make a connection. I use Fedora 16.

Could you help fix the problem?

And finally, I am not a Linux expert.

Thank you.

This site is down.

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at homeshop18.com.

Nah, when you're new to an OS and you hit a glitch, you automatically think it's something to do with the OS not some website's server that's borked. Happens to me all the time when I'm forced to use that newfangled "Windows" OS.
