Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which could be frustrating for any visitor. That is the reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, based on your taste, and that will match the design and style of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Inside the pop-up which will show up, you shall see drop-down options menus for all four sorts of errors and for each one of them you could pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a tailor-made page. In case you pick the 3rd option, you should only enter the URL to the file that you've uploaded and save the change.
