If you have looked at many websites, you've probably come across some error message from time to time. An error may take place when 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 permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could often be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and which could have any content which you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.
