When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which can be annoying for any visitor. This is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which may be informative or humorous, in accordance with your preference, and which shall match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages won't look like they aren't part of your site at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
