Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which can be aggravating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or funny, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall design of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they are not part of your site at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
