If you have browsed many Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error could occur if the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not 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 could sometimes be frustrating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and that may have any content that you would like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
