When a page on your site does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have practically nothing in common with the design of your site, which can be annoying for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or funny, depending on your choice, and which will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them through the process. This feature may be de-activated at any time and the options you shall be able to to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages.
