Whenever a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which could be irritating for any site visitor. This is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your choice, and which shall match the design and style of your site, so the pages will not look like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
