If you have checked out many sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could take place in case the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages can often be annoying because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and which may have any content which you want - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny remark. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Inside the pop-up which will show up, you will see drop-down menus for all 4 types of errors and for each of them you could pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a personalized page. Should you select the 3rd option, you should simply input the URL to the file which you have uploaded then save the change. A different way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to include a few lines of program code in it. If you don't have previous experience or if you're simply unsure how to do this, you can just copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.
