Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your website, which could be irritating for any website visitor. That is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or humorous, in accordance with your personal preference, and which will match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages won't look like they are not part of your site at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

You must upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them through the process. This feature may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages.
