If you have looked at loads of Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can take place in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages may sometimes be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own website and that can have any content which you want - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. This kind of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Inside the pop-up which will appear, you shall see drop-down menus for all four kinds of errors and for each one of them you can pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a customized page. Should you select the 3rd option, you should simply type the URL to the file which you have uploaded then save the change. A different way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add several lines of program code in it. In case you don't have previous experience or if you're just uncertain how to do that, you can just copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that topic.
