If you have browsed a lot of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error can occur when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering such messages may sometimes be annoying as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which can have any content which you want - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
