If you have looked at many websites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can take place if the web 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 are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages could sometimes be aggravating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and which could have any content that you want - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.
