If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your site, which can be irritating for any website visitor. This is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the design and style of your website, so the pages will not seem like they're not part of your 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).
