If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error could occur when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can often be frustrating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own Internet site and which can have any content which you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty comment. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
