When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your website, which may be aggravating for any site visitor. That is the reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which could be informative or funny, based on your taste, and that will match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages will not appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
