When a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have nothing that resembles the layout of your website, which can be annoying for any visitor. That is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and which will match the design and style of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

You have to upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them through the process. This function can be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made 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.
