Custom Error Pages
Find out about web site error pages, exactly when they appear and why should you use customized error pages.
If a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have practically nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which can be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the main reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which could be informative or funny, depending on your choice, and which will match the design and style of your site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
