If you have browsed a lot of websites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error may take place when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving such messages may sometimes be aggravating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own site and that could have any content that you would like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This kind of function will help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.
