Each time a page on your Internet 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's standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which may be aggravating for any visitor. This is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your unique content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages won't seem like they are not part of your website at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
