If you have checked out a lot of websites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error could take place in case the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving such messages may often be annoying because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and that could have any content which you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.
