If you have looked at loads of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error can take place in case the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can sometimes be annoying because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and which can have any content that you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous comment. This type of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.

For the aforementioned alternative, you'll have to assign the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you have to upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The exact syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
