If you have looked at a lot of Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error can occur in case the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving such messages may often be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and that can have any content which you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous comment. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
