Receiving this type of messages can often be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the style of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing comment. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.
