The first thing to do is to check the page address. If you entered it manually, then there may be typos or extra characters. If you follow the link, then the problem may be in it. Since people fill the sites, they too can make mistakes and put broken links. In this case, you must carefully review the address. 

Copy the full address of the link: right-click on the link and select "Copy link address". Paste it into any text editor and review it carefully. Perhaps in the link, there are extra characters, spaces or something else is out of order.

Try also to search for the page address in the search engine. Perhaps the search engine will give the correct link without errors.

You can also write to the owners of the site, perhaps they will prompt you a new address or give the necessary information.

Try a different browser

It is unlikely, but still worth trying another browser. If the page opens in it, then the problem is on your side. Try clearing your browser cache.
