Whenever a page on your site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which may be irritating for any visitor. This is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which can be informative or funny, depending on your choice, and that will match the design and style of your site, so the pages will not appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
