Sometimes when you are trying to connect to websites or services in Google Chrome, you may receive the error message no date received instead of the website you wanted to load.
The message indicates a data transfer issue that is sometimes difficult to correct as it may not always be caused on your end.
For some users of the browser, no data received may appear completely random as they may be able to load sites right after the error, or may not experience it at all for a prolonged period of time.
Anyway, when the error is displayed you get two options on the screen. The first allows you to reload the page which works similar to hitting F5 on the keyboard or using the reload button in Chrome's interface.
The more button on the other hand reveals additional information about the error. Common messages that you may get here include Error code: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE, ERR_TIMED_OUT, Error 324 and the server closed the connection without sending any data.
You can try a couple of things to load the website correctly:
As you can see, there are several solutions available. There is unfortunately no single solution that fixes the issue for all users.
As mentioned earlier, this can also be a remote issue. If nothing helps, try connecting to the site at a later point in time.
