If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your customized content, which can be informative or amusing, based on your personal preference, and that will match the overall design of your site, so the pages shall not look like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

For the latter alternative, you'll have to assign the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you must upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type.
