If you have looked at loads of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can take place if the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can sometimes be frustrating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and which may have any content that you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.
