Whenever a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which could be irritating for any site visitor. This is the main reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which could be informative or humorous, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the overall design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
