If you have looked at lots of Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error can take place when the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can sometimes be frustrating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and which could have any content that you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
