Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability will have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which could be irritating for any website visitor. This is the reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or amusing, depending on your taste, and that will match the design of your website, so the pages will not seem like they're not part of your site at all. You could use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
