Custom Error Pages
Find out what a Custom Error Page is, what role does it serve and ways to make one.
If you have looked at lots of sites, you've probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error can occur if the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages may often be frustrating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the style of your own Internet site and which could have any content that you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. This type of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
