If you have checked out loads of sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error could occur when the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages could sometimes be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which can have any content which you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. This type of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
