Setting up your own website is a great way to make yourself connected to a lot of people. Your website can be of different purposes, such as business and non-profit advocacy. Whatever your reason may be for building a website, it is such an inconvenience when your website refuses to load. If your business depends on your website, you incur losses every minute that it is down. As the owner and the one responsible for the status of your website, you also cause trouble to many people who happen to depend on your website for its contents that they find helpful. For example, if your website helps people to get a taxi online, it will be disappointing to see your webpage down. Thus, making sure that your website is up and running at all times is the most important task.
However, you do not have control of everything that makes your website functioning. You should be ready for those moments that your website is not working properly. Luckily, you are in the right place to look for answers if your website is down for some unknown reasons. Here are some tips to help you figure out what’s wrong with your website and fix it at the soonest.
Maybe It’s Just Your Internet Connection
When you try to access your website and encounter an error page, there could be two reasons for this. First, your website or hosting server has problems. The second possible reason is an issue with your internet service provider that makes your computer unable to connect to the website’s host server.
Check first if it is just your internet connection that has problems. Visit other websites and see if they work properly. For example, go search for plastic surgery Calgary prices and see if the results page will load normally. If not, then the problem is most likely your internet connection. Contact your internet service provider (ISP) so that they can fix the faulty internet connection. If the connection is already fixed but your website is still not displaying correctly, then consider following the next tips.
Determine The Kind Of Error That Is Affecting Your Website
There are many types of errors that you may encounter when trying to visit a website, including “The webpage is not available,” “Error establishing a database connection,” “500- Internal server error,” and many more.
If the error that you are reading says something like “500,” “400,” or some other statements that suggest a problem in establishing a database connection, then it is probably your website and/or website host that you need to fix. If not, there could be many other reasons, which might still include the hosting server, but perhaps this has something to some parts of your website’s codes that prevent internet browsers from displaying the website correctly.
In the latter case, check if there are contents that were added before the website stopped functioning. Try removing these newly-added contents first, and if your website works without them, then there are probably some glitches on them that you need to fix first before adding them to your website again.
Gather All The Info Available About The Error And Check With The Website Host Manager
If it is already apparent that the problem lies with the website hosting, it is time to make a call or write an e-mail to your website hosting maintenance provider. Jut down all the details you can read from the error page and relay these details to them. That will be helpful for your website maintenance provider to diagnose the issues with the server and have your website running once again in just one click.
