You can  use these error codes to specify your own custom error pages through the .htaccess file. For example, supposing you want a custom page for anyone who experiences an internal server error, you would put this in the .htaccess file: 

ErrorDocument 500 /errorpages/500error.html 

This is of course assuming the file you want displayed is 500error.html located in the /errorpages directory.
