For a variety of different errors, visitors shall see your custom content, which could be informative or amusing, in accordance with your taste, and that will match the overall design of your website, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
