If a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have nothing in common with the layout of your site, which can be annoying for any website visitor. That is the reason why hosting companies have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your taste, and that will match the style and design of your website, so the pages shall not look like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
