If you have browsed lots of sites, you've probably encountered some error message now and again. An error may take place when the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages may often be irritating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
