Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing that resembles the design of your site, which may be annoying for any site visitor. This is the main reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or funny, depending on your preference, and which will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they are not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
