If you have browsed loads of websites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can take place if the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages can often be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own website and that can have any content which you want - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
