Here is a list of the most common error codes and what they really mean. The first thing you should do anytime you get an error is to make sure that the Web address (URL) that you typed in exactly matches the address you were given. Check that the capitalization matches, that all words are spelled properly, and that all the punctuation, like dots (.) and slashes (/), are correctly placed. Be sure you are using the forward slash (/) and not the backward slash (\). (Remember, there are no spaces allowed in Web addresses, and a proper Web address will look like http://www.htmlshop.com.

401 - Authorization Required The creators of a Web page may want only certain people have access to that page. There are several ways to limit access to a Web page, including password protection. You may get the "401 - Authorization Required" error message when you try to view a Web page with limited access. (A Web site may have a customized version of this error message, such as a screen saying "Access Denied" or "Unavailable.")

403 - Forbidden This standard error message is generated by Web servers when you try to access a file that has not been correctly configured by whomever maintains it. (The file needs to be set with "read permissions" for all users.)

404 - Page not found A 404 - Not Found error means that there was no Web page with the name you specified at the Web site. This could happen for a variety of reasons:

The page may have been renamed, moved, or deleted.

500 - Page not available If the server has been incorrectly set up or is experiencing mechanical problems, it will return this error.
