When a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have nothing in common with the design of your website, which can be aggravating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or amusing, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall design of your site, so the pages will not appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
