When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which may be aggravating for any website visitor. This is the reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which can be informative or amusing, depending on your preference, and that will match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages will not seem like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
