If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may occur if the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages may often be annoying as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that will match the design of your own site and which can have any content that you want - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
