When a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which can be irritating for any site visitor. That is the reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the design of your site, so the pages shall not look like they're not part of your site at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
