If you have browsed a lot of sites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error may occur when the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could sometimes be annoying because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and that may have any content that you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
