There is nothing worse than going to a web page and finding the dreaded “Error 404 – Page Not Found”. No website owner wants to put his viewers through an error like this. However, no matter how hard you try, it’s virtually impossible to escape broken links.
There is, however, a way to make it slightly easier for viewers to get on the right track after clicking a broken link. By using a custom error page, you will be able to redirect users who experience an error, to a page you have built. This means that in spite of any errors a viewer may experience, they will remain on your website.
Setting up a custom error page is not difficult. It can be accomplish by putting a simple script on your server. Contact your hosting provider for detailed instructions on how to do this.
