Each time a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing in common with the design of your website, which can be annoying for any visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and that will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
