Avoiding syntax error for "as" operator in python

I am getting syntax error from python for 'as' statement. I don't know for sure, but I suspect my webserver is outdated python.

x@y.com [~/www/dmi-tcat/helpers]# python urlexpand.py
  File "urlexpand.py", line 70
    except HTTPError as e:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
x@y.com [~/www/dmi-tcat/helpers]# 


Can anyone confirm this and is there a way to write the same piece of code without an as statement? My host doesn't want to update python for a minute.
