Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the primary reason why hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors will see your customized content, which could be informative or amusing, in accordance with your preference, and that will match the overall design of your site, so the pages will not seem like they aren't part of your site at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

You should upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated at any time and the options you shall be able to to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized 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.

Including your pages for each of the four error types to any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very easy and will not take more than a few clicks.
