Most of the time while browsing the web on the internet, various websites do not open but we have a page not found written in front of us under which an error number is listed.

But do you know what these error numbers mean? Which often irritates the mind. Well, some website error codes are the result of your own error, but most are the result of server issues that only the website administration can fix.

Error 404:

This is the most common error code, which means that the page cannot be found. Most of the time this error comes to the fore when you are not typing the URL of a website correctly, then correct the typing error and that’s it. However, if you are entering the correct URL and still failing, it means that the page has been deleted or modified.

Error 400:

This error is also known as user ‘bad request’. Google Chrome comes up with the error message ‘Page is not working at the moment’ with some guidelines.

This error is usually the result of an error on your part, such as the server not understanding your request if the URL is misspelled or the file you are uploading is too large. If this error occurs, clear the cache and correct the URL. If the problem persists, consult Google.

Error 410:

This is a ‘Gone’ status error, with the message ‘This page do not exist or page deleted/gone’. This is not a problem with your device, but the website administration has deleted the ad page or there is a problem with them.

Error 451:

This code reflects a number of legal reasons preventing you from viewing a URL. For example, if an organization or individual makes a legal request to remove content on a page, then this error may occur. Such errors require the use of a VPN or proxy server to view the content.

Error 503:

This is also a well-known error with the word 503 Source Unavailable, which appears when a website is down. In this case, access to the website is not granted until the site issue is resolved.

There are various reasons for this, such as the site’s server being down for some reason, too many people visiting a site at the same time, a bug on the site, or someone taking it offline.

By the way, there is a long list of error codes, but the codes listed above are the ones that most people see. Otherwise, the codes of the 200 series are invisible to anyone because most of the codes indicate that the site is doing well.
