If you have looked at loads of websites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error may take place when the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages could sometimes be aggravating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you would like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
