Custom Error Pages
Get familiar with website error pages. Learn when they appear and why you should configure your individual custom error pages.
If you have looked at loads of sites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error could occur in case the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can often be irritating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and that could have any content which you would like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. This kind of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.

You need to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them during the process.
