If you have checked out a lot of sites, you've probably come across some error message every now and then. An error could occur when the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can often be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and which can have any content which you want - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. This kind of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
