If you have browsed lots of sites, you've probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error could take place in case the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages may sometimes be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and that could have any content which you'd like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. This type of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.
