While your advice to always save the original document is very sound,
the document might still be on the website, but on a different page or
with a different name, so the link (the path to the document) isn't
accurate now. You might try truncating the URL a piece at a time (some
shortened versions won't work because of directory limitations), and see
where that takes you.

If the site offers a site search,that might also be helpful

At one time there was a website dedicated to the Jewish Cemetery in Harbin, China,
with lists of all those buried there. I printed out every page, and one day, the
site was gone. But I still have my printed pages....

Don't give up quite yet....
