If a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what's standard 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 can be frustrating for any visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or humorous, in accordance with your personal preference, and which shall match the design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they are not part of your website at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
