The page you are currently looking for is unavailable error

When I try to log on to a website, a message appeared saying ‘the page you are looking for is currently unavailable’ Is this because the website is experiencing technical difficulties, or is there a need to adjust the browser?

There are both possibilities in this condition. Either the website is experiencing technical difficulties, or there is something wrong with your browser. If you are using Internet Explorer, leave it. Try switching to Mozilla or Chrome.

Internet explorer needs something’s to be manually done by the user. Most sites require a particular level of security by the browser in order to be accessed.

You get this error if your browser doesn't support or meet the required level of security. Also there might be something wrong with the Internet explorer. Try deleting the internet history and temporary internet files and then try.

Also go to drive: Documents and SettingsusernameLocal SettingsTemporary Internet FilesContent.IE5 and Del index.dat and restart your computer. This will remake the index.bat file.

The second possibility is if the Server on which the website is hosted is bombarded by huge number of requests and it has stuck or is not able to respond to such huge number of requests. You can just wait until that site admins solve the issue.

This thing happens to sites that are hosted in VPS, Virtual Private Servers where all the servers are hosted on one single machine and when 1 VPS gets a great number of requests, it halts the others.

The message you received when you try to access a page on a website is just a 404 error which means the page you want to access is missing and can’t be accessed. One possible cause is if the page was renamed. When this happens, the link or URL you are trying to use will no longer be valid.

Another possible cause is if the page was moved to a different location like on a different folder. This will also make the link you are using invalid even if the name of the HTML file was not changed because the path to the file is now different. Another cause is if the file or page you want to access has been deleted.

Since this problem is on the website which is out of your control, the only thing you can do is search the website and hope you find the resource you are looking for. You can also use this format on Google search to search the particular website:

  • [search string] site:[domain name]

Replace without quotes “[search string]” with the content or texts you are searching and replace without quotes “[domain name]” with the site’s domain name. For example:

  • download flash player standalone site:techyv.com

When you use this format on Google search, Google will search the target website or domain instead of searching all searchable websites on the internet.
