If you have checked out lots of sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error can take place when 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 aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can often be aggravating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and that can have any content which you would like - details 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 regardless of the error or the reason for it.
