If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which can be annoying for any website visitor. This is the reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and which shall match the overall style and design of your website, so the pages shall not appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
