If you have looked at a lot of websites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error can take place when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages could sometimes be annoying as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you want - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. Such a function will help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.
