If you have browsed many sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error may occur in case the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can 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 which isn't on the server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could sometimes be annoying because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
