If you have looked at lots of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error can take place in case the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can sometimes be frustrating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own site and that can have any content which you want - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you can change the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for any of the four error types. All you must do is provide a link to every file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you shall be able to revert this customization at any time and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It must be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder related to the website whose error pages you would like to alter and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
