If you have looked at a lot of websites, you've probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error may occur when the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can sometimes be aggravating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own website and that may have any content which you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
