The message indicates that your browser isn’t able to find the website you’re trying to access.

Unable to Connect
The ‘Unable to connect’ error message looks similar to the ‘Server not found’ message mentioned above, but they differ from each other in many other respects. If you’ve got this error screen, then it means that your browser has successfully contacted its DNS servers. Once the DNS server is contacted, it is identified that there should be a website at the target location. But, the error reports that your browser did not receive a response from the website’s servers, when tried to connect.
This message simply means that either the website itself is down or experiencing problems while getting connected. It is recommended to try ‘Down For Everyone Or Just For Me’ website to check whether the website is actually down or it’s you just can’t be accessed.
