If you have looked at lots of Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may occur if the hosting 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 permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could often be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and that can have any content which you would like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing comment. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
