When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any site visitor. This is the reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which can be informative or amusing, based on your choice, and which will match the style and design of your Internet site, so the pages will not seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
