Custom Error Pages
Find out what a Custom Error Page is, what function does it serve and the way to create one.
If you have browsed a lot of sites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error may take place when the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages can often be irritating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and that may have any content which you want - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
