When a page on your site does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which could be irritating for any visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or witty, based on your choice, and which will match the design of your Internet site, so the pages shall not look like they're not part of your website at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
