If you have checked out many websites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error could take place when the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages may often be irritating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and which could have any content that you want - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing remark. This sort of function can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.
