Hi,

Basically, it totally depends on the nature of website. For any general web application, what you have handled is enough!

More Error Codes - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943891

Moreover, instead of looking for each and every HTTP Error Code, you can have generic error page which will be redirected!

You can also use Logging to write the HTTP Error Log, to trace the codes!

Hope it helps u...

Technically, those are 'status codes' which include codes for success as well as errors.

The three given by @vimalmaria are the most common errors that you need to fix.

...have a website and scan the external URL's to check...
Are you checking external links (ie: to URLs that go off your web site with anchor tags that have href attributes pointing to a protocol like http or https)?  If that is the case, you probably can't "fix" them, but you can delete them.

Example:  I post a URL on your site that links to http://laprbass.com/missingPage.html and if you try to follow that link you get a 404 response.  You can't really do anything about it -- it's not your site.  But you can delete my post, and you probably should consider doing that.
