If you have checked out loads of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can take place when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can often be irritating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own site and that could have any content which you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
