    In webmaster tools, click on that link (and the next) and you will see the same error page.
    You must figure out why you have a link to "nothing". Either you have a page missing, wrong name, or the link is wrong. Fix this up.

    It is very simple, in the internet options, go to the connections tab and makesure the there is nothing checked in the LAN Settings window, and if nothing is checked, do an IE Reset (After doing RESET, you would loose the passwords which are saved on the personal website)

    Download all 404 errors from webmaster then do appropriate 301 redirection so that you will not loose that visitor. Put Noindex meta so that Google don't able index such pages.

    A 404 error means that the link you clicked on was faulty. Or that the link is to a page that has been removed. It does not exist. If you know that the site exists, the 404 error can appear when Yahoo is working on the server. The problem lasts for 2-3 days, then disappears when the work is done. 404 errors can be frustrating because you don't know exactly what is happening.... so you don't know how to fix it.

    404 Not Found error messages is basically customized by individual websites, so you should be aware that the 404 error may show up in just about any way imaginable. To avoid this do appropriate 301 redirection so that you will not loose that visitor.

    Although the search engines cannot find the page, it exists somewhere, either on the rajeshprodeb's computer or on the hosting provider's servers. Depending on how it was created, and where it is, rajeshprodeb can open the file on his computer, or go to his account on the hosting provider's server, and view the source code. If the problem is with the source code, he can then see what it is and fix it.

    I think this is because of hosting server problem. I too faced it sometimes.
    You may contact the customer support of your hosting service provider for resolution of this error.

    Pressing F5
    Check for errors in the URL
    Clear your browser's cache
    Move up one directory level at a time in the URL until you find something.

    This error (HTTP 404) means that this program was able to connect to the website but the page you wanted was not found. Clear your browser's cache if you have any indication that the 404 Not Found message might just be yours. For example, if you can reach the URL from your phone but not from your tablet, clearing the cache on your tablet's browser might help.

    Retry the page by pressing F5, clicking the invigorate/reload catch, or attempting the URL from the location bar once more.

    The 404 Not Found blunder may show up for a few reasons despite the fact that no main problem exists, so at times a basic invigorate will regularly stack the page you were searching for.

    Weigh for blunders in the URL. Customarily the 404 Not Found mistake shows up on the grounds that the URL was written wrong or the connection that was clicked on focuses to the wrong URL.

    Climb one index level at once in the URL until you discover something.

    Case in point, if www.web.com/a/b/c.htm provided for you the 404 Not Found blunder, climb to www.web.com/a/b/. On the off chance that you don't get anything here (or a blunder), climb to www.web.com/a/. This ought to lead you to what you're searching for or in any event affirm that it generally won't accessible.

    Tip: If you have moved the distance up to the site's landing page, attempt to run a quest for the data you're searching for. In the event that the site doesn't have a pursuit capacity, take a stab at exploring to the page you need utilizing class connections to dive deeper into the site.

    Scan for the page at a prominent web crawler. It's conceivable that you basically have the totally wrong URL in which case a speedy Google or Bing inquiry ought to get you where you need to go.

    On the off chance that you do discover the page you were after, upgrade your bookmark or most loved to stay away from the HTTP 404 blunder later on.

    Clear your program's store on the off chance that you have any sign that the 404 Not Found message may very well be yours. Case in point, in the event that you can achieve the URL from your telephone yet not from your tablet, clearing the reserve on your tablet's program may offer assistance.

    You may likewise consider clearing your program's treats, or in any event the one(s) included with the site being referred to, if clearing the reserve didn't work.

    Change the DNS servers utilized by your machine however normally just if a whole site is providing for you a 404 blunder, particularly if the site is accessible to those on different systems (e.g. your cellular telephone system or a companion in an alternate city).

    If you have too many 404 errors your site visitors will suffer a poor experience and the search engines may penalize you as well. On how to fix it you need to check your broken links and create an account on Google webmaster tools. Login and navigate to Crawl Errors click the errors you want to fix for example: Not Found. Keep searching for more info.
