If you have browsed lots of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error could occur if the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages could often be frustrating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own Internet site and that may have any content which you want - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
