403 forbidden blues

Hi All, I hope that this isn't off topic for this group. I searched, and have been unable to find an appropriate group.

I'm getting a 403 forbidden error on my website, http://www.j1m.net, and I'm not sure why. Permissions are set ok (I've tried a variety of them, from 655 to 777), I have an index.html file in place . . .

The site is hosted by 1and1.com, and it's on a linux/apache setup. I don't have access to the error logs. The only thing that I can think of is that (1) I deleted two unused subdomains last night, and (2) I unsuccessfully tried to install wordpress in a /subrosa folder last night.

I've heard of having to wait 24-48 hours after making domain-related changes, but everything comes up ok when I do a DNS lookup. Any ideas?
