If a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which can be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or humorous, depending on your taste, and which will match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages shall not appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

You have to upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you shall be able to to choose from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Personalized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages.
