If you have browsed lots of websites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error can occur when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can sometimes be aggravating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and that could have any content which you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.
