Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing in common with the design of your site, which can be frustrating for any visitor. That is the primary reason why hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall design and style of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
