What Causes the Error 1005 Access Denied Issue?

After going through the set of solutions that have been listed below, we came to the conclusion that the following must be some of the most crucial reasons behind its occurrence.

  • Proxied Connection: In certain cases, if you are using a proxied connection, the website might not be able to load properly because your connection becomes suspicious if detected by the server. Therefore, we recommend that you temporarily turn off the proxy on your connection and then check to see if doing so fixes the Error 1005 Access Denied issue.
  • Corrupted Cache: Sometimes the cache that you have implemented on your browser or the cache been implemented by the website can be corrupted due to which the error message is being seen. Therefore, we recommend that you try and clear out the cache temporarily and then check to see if doing so fixes the error message.
  • DNS Issue: If configured incorrectly, the DNS server that you are using on your computer might not be fully equipped to resolve the DNS address and this can sometimes cause the Error 1005 Access Denied issue while loading certain websites.
  • Blocked IP Issue: The IP address that you use can sometimes be blocked by the server due to suspicious activity and that can cause the Error 1005 Access Denied to appear on your computer. Therefore, we recommend that you check to see if your IP address has been blacklisted in certain areas of the world.
