If you have checked out loads of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error may occur in case the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages can sometimes be aggravating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own site and which can have any content that you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error and the reason for it.
