If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error could take place when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must 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 is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages may sometimes be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and which may have any content which you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.
