An error can take place when the website hosting server cannot 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 able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404).

Such a feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
