Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing in common with the layout of your site, which can be irritating for any site visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or amusing, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the layout of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your site at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Inside the pop-up that will be displayed, you shall see drop-down options menus for all 4 kinds of errors and for each one of them you can select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a personalized page. If you select the 3rd option, you should only type the URL to the file that you have uploaded then save the change.
