If you have looked at many sites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error could take place when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could often be aggravating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own site and which can have any content which you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
