If you have browsed many Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error may occur when the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can often be irritating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and that may have any content that you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. Such a function shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.
