If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which can be frustrating for any website visitor. This is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
