If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which could be annoying for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or humorous, depending on your taste, and that will match the layout of your site, so the pages will not seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
