If you have browsed loads of websites, you've probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could take place in case the web server can't 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 page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages can sometimes be aggravating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and that may have any content which you want - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error and the reason for it.
