If you have browsed a lot of websites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error can occur when the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can 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 is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages can often be frustrating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and that could have any content that you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This type of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
