When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which may be annoying for any visitor. That is the reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or witty, depending on your taste, and that will match the layout of your site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
