Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which can be annoying for any visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors shall see your custom content, which could be informative or humorous, in accordance with your personal preference, and that will match the design and style of your website, so the pages shall not look like they're not part of your website at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
