What do you mean "download" the site? Are you trying to get FTP access to the actual files so that you can copy them to your local system?

At the moment, your site is not loading. If I try to ping it, I don't even get an IP address. I'm not familiar with Winsocket, but at the moment, it looks like Winsocket's server that hosts your site is down, or they don't realize they are hosting it for you. There is just nothing there. Even if the server was malfunctioning, I should be able to resolve to an IP address. I cannot. It is as though that domain doesn't even exist.

It looks like Winsocket has decent prices, but a good price is useless if your site is not accessible. I would get my money back and go with a different hosting company.

I host six sites on GoDaddy, and have been using their service for years. Their prices are comperable to Winsocket. I've never had a site go down. Their customer service is excellent. The administrative tools to manage your site are very difficult to use, and not intuitive at all, but once you learn to navigate their site, it's workable.

We are a UK based web design company. We have built websites for 4 Irish Companies. All have purchased new domains from Eircom direct. We have been trying to set these live for the past two months but seem...

This sounds like a company that I wouldn't want to work with for any extended period of time. Thankfully, once you purchase domain names they are yours to do with what you wish and there is no law stating that you must leave your domains with that company. People transfer domains from one management registrar to another all the time.

This website gives you a good explanation of everything and will take you through the steps of getting it transferred if this is what you would like to do.

I personally use GoDaddy because I can do zone updates myself. It's quick, easy and pretty reliable.

Thumbs up if this answer helped you!
