Error Pages 
The Error Pages function allows you to modify the different HTML pages that a 
user will see when an error is registered on your site. For example, you can 
change the file not found page to include your logo, a link back to your site, and 
apology, or something else. Changing these pages can give a more personal feel 
to your site and can also be useful when your site is under construction.

1 To access the Error Pages, click on the icon in the "Advanced" secion of the 
cPanel interface as shown, below:

2 Click on the number of the error you wish to modify the page for.

3 Enter the new HTML code into the blank field on the page that appears. You can 
use the buttons to insert pre-made bits of HTML code for you.

4 Change the name of the file in the field next to Save as, if necessary.

5 When you are finished editing the page, click on Save to save the modified error 


The following is an explanation of each error page:

when trying to access a restricted page.


  This will be reached when access is forbidden to the page the user to trying to 


 This will be reached when a user misspells a url to a page they are trying to 
access. It is important to be helpful with your 404 error page or the user may 
decide to leave your site.


 This will be reached when the page cannot be displayed. This can occur when a 
script fails to run, or under other circumstances. You should have the user contact 
the site administrator when this page is shown.



Make sure to be friendly and helpful when creating custom error pages so your 
users stay at your web site rather than leaving when an error is found.
