If you have browsed lots of sites, you've probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could take place if the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages could often be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own website and that could have any content that you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous comment. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
