The server might have been rebooted (for various reasons) by the hosting staff. A router might have gone down somewhere between you and the server. A router might have become overloaded somewhere due to scheduled maintenance on another, etc.

There are many reasons why a website might be unavailable for a minute or two here and there, and most of those reasons are very benign. The internet is very fault-tolerant -- don't worry about it.

If you have any periods of extended problems (hours or days long) with the site, however, let us know.
