Custom Error Pages
Learn what a Custom Error Page is, what function does it have and how to make one.
If you have looked at loads of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error can take place when the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages may often be irritating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own Internet site and which may have any content which you'd like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing comment. This kind of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
