Each time 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 typical for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your site, which could be annoying for any site visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or witty, based on your preference, and that will match the design and style of your website, so the pages won't look like they're not 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).

For the last mentioned option, you'll have to assign the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you need to upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type.
