Custom Error Pages
Find out about website error pages, when they show up and why you ought to utilize customized error pages.
If you have browsed lots of websites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error may take place in case the web 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 aren't permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can often be frustrating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own Internet site and that could have any content that you'd like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.
