If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could take place when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can often be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
