If a specific page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or in case a link is not functioning, the website visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the site, that may make the visitor leave your site. A potential solution in cases like this is a function offered by some website hosting service providers - the ability to set up your own custom-made error pages which shall have the exact same design and style as your website and which could contain any images or text which you want depending on the specific error. There are 4 standard errors which could take place and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your Internet browser sends a bad request to the web server and it can't be processed; 401, in case you are supposed to log in to see a web page, but you haven't done so yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to view a particular page; and 404, in case a link which you have clicked leads to a file that does not exist. In any of these situations, site visitors will be able to see your customized content instead of a generic error page.
