Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any visitor. This is the reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, based on your preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages won't look like they're not part of your website 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 will need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you need to upload the files inside your hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type.
