If you have browsed loads of sites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can occur in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages could often be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and that could have any content which you want - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This kind of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
