If you have checked out a lot of sites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error may occur if the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can often be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and that could have any content that you want - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. Such a function will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
