If you have checked out lots of Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error can take place when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must 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 if a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages may sometimes be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own website and that may have any content that you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This sort of function can help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.
