A 408 error simply means the communication between your computer and the server took longer then expected.

Was this a 1 time error, or does it still happen when you try loading your site? This can happen if there was a intermentent problem with your internet connection.

Did it happen during a peak time for your site? If so, it means your web server is not able to handle the high traffic load.

There could be many reasons for this. To understand more we'd need to know more about site or application and the server architecture. It could be firewall related (too many POST requests regarded as suspicious) or it could be a sessions problem.

Bascially it is The server did not receive a complete request message within the time that it was prepared to wait. Did the website start loading later? I would start by asking help from your hosting provider, they need to see if there is a load problem on the server.

This error normally occurs when a client sends a request to the server, and the request is timed out on the server. Their are lot of possibilities caused that can create this error, most common cause is your local issues only, that is due to proper internet connection or any local firewall issues. If everything is fine with local end then their is also a chance for the error is server related and the case is when a huge traffic coming to server and your request gets hampered may cause this error.
