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