Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have nothing in common with the design of your site, which may be annoying for any visitor. That is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors shall see your customized content, which can be informative or amusing, in accordance with your preference, and which will match the style and design of your Internet site, so the pages will 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).
