If you have browsed lots of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error could occur in case the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can sometimes be frustrating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny remark. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.
