If you have checked out lots of websites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could occur when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could sometimes be annoying since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages that will match the design of your own site and that may have any content which you want - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.
