When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your website, which may be annoying for any website visitor. This is the main reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your taste, and that will match the layout of your website, so the pages shall not look like they are not part of your website at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
