If you have looked at lots of websites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error may occur when the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages may often be aggravating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own site and that can have any content that you would like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This kind of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.
