If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error may occur in case the hosting server cannot 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 aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can often be aggravating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and which may have any content that you want - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
