If you have browsed a lot of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error can take place in case the website hosting 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 aren't able to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages can sometimes be annoying because the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.
