Custom Error Pages
Learn what a Custom Error Page is, what role does it serve and the way to create one.
If you have looked at loads of Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can occur when the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages can sometimes be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which could have any content which you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous remark. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.
