Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which can be irritating for any website visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't appear as if they aren't part of your site at all. You could use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
