Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which may be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or witty, in accordance with your taste, and which shall match the overall style and design of your website, so the pages shall not appear as if they aren't part of your website at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Inside the pop-up that will show up, you shall see drop-down menus for all 4 types of errors and for each one of them you may pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page.
