If you have looked at a lot of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error can take place in case the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages can often be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages which will match the design of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. Such a function will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.

In the pop-up which will be displayed, you'll see drop-down menus for all 4 types of errors and for each of them you could select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a tailor-made page.
