If you have browsed many sites, you have probably come across some error message now and again. An error can occur when the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages could often be frustrating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own site and which may have any content which you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing remark. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error and the reason for it.
