Whenever a page on your site does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your website, which could be irritating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or humorous, in accordance with your personal preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
