If you have browsed many websites, you've probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error can take place when the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages may sometimes be frustrating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and which can have any content which you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty comment. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
