If you have checked out many sites, you have probably stumbled upon 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 must log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages may often be aggravating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and which may have any content which you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
