If you have checked out a lot of sites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error could occur when the 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 are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering such messages could often be frustrating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages that will match the layout of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny comment. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
