If a page on your site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which may be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and which will match the overall design of your website, so the pages won't seem like they aren't part of your site at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
