Receiving 502 error again & again?


I am receiving a 502 error for my website again & again. It is easy to change my current hosting and move to Dreamhost? Is Dreamhost is safe for DMCA point of view?

You’ll need to elaborate this statement to get an answer.

However, moving hosts may not solve errors on your site. Look at your error log & fix the problems first, then consider the move.

FYI - all hosts have occasional server (50*) errors. In my experience, DH has very few.

.Try loading the URL again by pressing F5 on your keyboard, or by clicking the refresh/reload button.

While the 502 Bad Gateway error is usually indicating a networking error outside of your control, it could be extremely temporary. Trying the page again will often be successful.

2 .Start a new browser session by closing all open browser windows and then opening a new one. Then try opening the eq webmail com webpage again.

It’s possible that the 502 error you received was due to an issue on your computer that occurred sometime during this use of your browser. A simple restart of the browser program itself could solve the problem.

3 .Clear your browser’s cache. Outdated or corrupted files that are being stored by your browser could be causing 502 Bad Gateway issues.

4 .Delete your browser’s cookies. For similar reasons as mentioned above with cached files, clearing stored cookies could fix a 502 error.

5 . Start your browser in Safe Mode. Running a browser in Safe Mode means to run it with default settings and without add-ons or extensions, including toolbars.

If the 502 error no longer appears when running your browser in Safe Mode, you know that some browser extension or setting is the cause of the problem. Return your browser settings to default and/or selectively disable browser extensions to find the root cause and permanently fix the problem.

6 .Try another browser. Popular browsers include Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari, among others.

If an alternative browser doesn’t produce a 502 Bad Gateway error, you now know that your original browser is the source of the problem. Assuming you’ve followed the above troubleshooting advice, now would be the time to reinstall your browser and see if that corrects the problem.

7 .Restart your computer. Some temporary issues with your computer and how it’s connecting to your network could be causing 502 errors, especially if you’re seeing the error on more than one website. In these cases, a restart would help.

8 .Restart your networking equipment. Issues with your modem, router, switches, or other networking devices could be causing Bad Gateway or other 502 errors. A simple restart of these devices could help.
