Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing in common with the design of your website, which could be irritating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your custom content, which can be informative or witty, in accordance with your personal preference, and which will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not look like they're not part of your website at all. You could use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
