Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which can be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors will see your unique content, which can be informative or witty, based on your choice, and that will match the design of your Internet site, so the pages shall 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).
