Sometimes when we are visiting a website, our browser will return with some unexpected results to tell us that a server is currently down, the webpage cannot be displayed. But, how do you make sure that a particular website is really down for just you, or for everyone?
Some messages that will be displayed in your browser when we encountered this problem are:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
Most likely causes:
* You are not connected to the Internet.
* The website is encountering problems.
* There might be a typing error in the address.
Failed to Connect
Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at google.com.
Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.
* Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later.
* Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer’s network connection.
* Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.
