Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, 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 design of your site, which may be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why hosting providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, based on your taste, and which will match the overall design of your Internet site, so the pages shall not appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
