If a particular page on a site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is not functioning, the visitor shall see an error page with a generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, that could make the visitor leave your website. A solution in this case is a feature offered by some hosting providers - the option to set your own customized error pages which will have identical style and design as your Internet site and that may contain any text or images which you want dependent upon the specific error. There are four well-known errors which can occur and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your web browser sends a bad request to the server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see a webpage, but you haven't done so yet; 403, if you don't have an authorization to see a particular page; and 404, if a link which you've clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In each of these cases, visitors will be able to see your customized content as opposed to a generic error page.
