    I have an eCommerce website. While I try to visit any product page i.e. inner page it doesn't load rather it says "The requested URL was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
    What's the problem. Is that mean website got problem with hosting? I take my hosting from a local reseller. What should I do please suggest me.
    Thank you!

    Why will you not check with your hosting support first rather than ask in the forum? They can help you better.

    That's why I don't buy cheap hosting :D

    Did you check if your .htaccess file is in place and named correctly?

    First understand what a 404 error means:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_404

    It means the page was not found or does not exist.

    Now there could be several reasons for this but you should check your directory and contact your host.
