Custom Error Pages
Understand what a Custom Error Page is, what function does it serve and how to create one.
If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can take place in case the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could sometimes be annoying because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and which may have any content that you'd like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. Such a function shall help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
