Custom Error Pages
Get familiar with website error pages. Discover when they show up and why you should make your individual custom error pages.
If you have browsed a lot of websites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error may take place in case the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could often be annoying as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and that can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
