If you have checked out lots of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error can occur if the website hosting server can't 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 able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages may often be frustrating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and which could have any content which you would like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing comment. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
