If a particular page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is not working, the site visitor shall see an error page with some generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the website, which could make the visitor leave your website. A likely solution in cases like this is a function offered by some website hosting providers - the ability to set your own personalized error pages which shall have the exact same design and style as your site and that could contain any images or text that you'd like dependent upon the particular error. There are four standard errors which can occur 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 cannot be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see some webpage, but you have not done this yet; 403, if you don't have an authorization to view a certain page; and 404, when a link that you have clicked leads to a file that does not exist. In all of these scenarios, website visitors shall be able to see your customized content as opposed to a generic error page.
