If you have looked at loads of sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error may occur if the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting such messages could sometimes be frustrating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and which can have any content that you want - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. This kind of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

You have to upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them through the process.
