Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which may be irritating for any website visitor. This is the main reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall design of your Internet site, so the pages shall not appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
