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