Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which can be frustrating for any site visitor. This is the reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and that will match the design of your website, so the pages shall not seem 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).
