If you have browsed a lot of sites, you have probably come across some error message now and again. An error can take place in case the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can 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 isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404).

This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
