Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly shall have nothing in common with the layout of your site, which may be annoying for any website visitor. This is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, based on your choice, and which shall match the layout of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your 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).
