Whenever a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which may be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your personal preference, and which will match the style and design of your site, so the pages won't look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
