    a 403 error message is usually a permissions error.
    there could be multiple reasons you see this message.

    the cause is usually
    1) Incorrect file or folder permissions
    2) Incorrect settings in the .htaccess file.

    As a reference, generally files get a chmod (permission of) 644
    while folders usually get chmod (permission of) 755

    locating the cause could be more complicated than that though.
    since it could be your htaccess file, could be the index file,
    or some other file you try to access like maybe a login page.

    providing the link to the page where you see the error might be helpful.

    I can't find the problem. Can I set up another site that will work?

    i would suggest using google search or similar then look for
    "403 forbidden error" and read a few of the suggested links/sites
    to locate and fix your error.
    it is not usually standard to just "make new accounts".
    and x10 hosting usually does not permit that. users are normally only
    allowed 1 account at a time. according to the terms of service.
