If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may occur if the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can often be frustrating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the style of your own website and that may have any content which you would like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
