When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability will have nothing in common with the layout of your website, which could be frustrating for any site visitor. This is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or humorous, in accordance with your choice, and which will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages shall not appear as if they're not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
