If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your website, which can be frustrating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors shall see your customized content, which can be informative or funny, in accordance with your personal preference, and which will match the layout of your site, so the pages will not appear as if they are not part of your website at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
