    Are you able to access other webites with Safari? There could be a problem with your connection.
    Also try to access the website through another browser. If you're able to view dropshots with another one, then Safari is the reason for your problem.
    There's also the possibility that the site can't be accessed at the moment. I tried to find it, but got that error as well.

    I also found news: since July the Dropshots app for iPad is available. That would be another option to view the pictures there.

    If you are talking about the "Free video Hosting and Photo Sharing" website (www.dropshots.com) - I think it's gone. In other words, it's not you, it's them. When I tried to load the site, I got a notice that said "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)." The same happens when I try to go to the web site from the app description (in the AppStore).

    So, either the website is down for maintenance, is broken (and they're trying to fix it) or it's no longer a valid/working site (the company has closed it).

    To be honest, I don't know why the site is not working. The only thing I CAN tell you for sure is that it is not you. So, maybe try sending the developer an e-mail to find out what is happening with the web site? It's the only thing I can think of to do. Sorry.

    EDIT: Well, never mind. After I posted the above, I pressed on the link. Now, it works! Go figure. I guess there was just a glitch. So, try again?
