Whenever a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, in accordance with your preference, and that will match the style and design of your site, so the pages will not appear as if they're not part of your site at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
