If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have practically nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which can be informative or humorous, based on your choice, and which will match the design of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

You need to upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page.
