If you have browsed lots of sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error can take place if the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages could often be annoying because the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and which may have any content which you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
