That is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which may be informative or humorous, based on your choice, and which shall match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages will not seem like they are not part of your site at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
