If you have checked out many sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can take place in case the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages may sometimes be frustrating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which may have any content which you want - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. This type of function shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.
