When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which may be annoying for any visitor. That is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages will not seem like they're not part of your website at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
