Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what's common 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 website, which could be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the main reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which can be informative or funny, in accordance with your preference, and that will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages won't look like they are not part of your site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
