If you have looked at many sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error could take place in case the web 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 aren't permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could sometimes be frustrating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own site and that could have any content which you would like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
