If you have looked at lots of websites, you have probably come across some error message now and again. An error could occur if the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have 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 when a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can often be frustrating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own website and that can have any content that you want - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
