Each time a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Because 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 almost certainly will have nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which can be aggravating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which may be informative or witty, in accordance with your personal preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages shall not appear as if they are not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
