If you have browsed a lot of sites, you've probably encountered some error message now and again. An error could occur if the 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 aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages can often be annoying because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and that may have any content that you want - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. Such a feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
