If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error may take place if the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering such messages could sometimes be aggravating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own website and that could have any content which you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.
