Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your site, which could be annoying for any website visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your taste, and that will match the design of your website, so the pages won't seem like they're not 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).
