Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which can be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or funny, based on your choice, and which shall match the overall design of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
