If you have browsed many Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error can take place in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving such messages may sometimes be frustrating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and that could have any content which you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error and the reason for it.
