If you have browsed loads of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error could occur in case the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Getting such messages may sometimes be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages which will match the design of your own website and that can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty comment. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
