Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have practically nothing in common with the design of your site, which could be irritating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your personal preference, and which shall match the style and design of your Internet site, so the pages will not seem like they're not part of your site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Inside the pop-up which will be displayed, you shall see drop-down options menus for all 4 sorts of errors and for each one of them you may pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a customized page. Should you choose the third option, you should only enter the URL to the file that you've uploaded then save the change. Another way to set custom made error pages is to set up an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add several lines of program code in it.
