If you have looked at many websites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error could take place if the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages can often be frustrating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own Internet site and that may have any content that you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
