If you have looked at lots of websites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error may take place in case the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to 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 that isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages may sometimes be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and which can have any content which you want - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.
