If you have looked at loads of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error may occur in case the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages may sometimes be annoying because the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own site and that can have any content that you want - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous comment. This kind of function will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
