An error could take place if the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404).

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