If you have browsed loads of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error can occur in case the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can sometimes be frustrating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the style of your own website and that could have any content that you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.
