If you have looked at many Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can occur in case the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages could often be aggravating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own Internet site and which may have any content which you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
