If you have browsed many sites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error may occur when the web hosting 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 are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages could often be aggravating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages which will match the style of your own website and which can have any content that you want - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing comment. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
