Whenever a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have nothing in common with the layout of your site, which may be irritating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, depending on your choice, and which shall match the design and style of your website, so the pages won't seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
