6. Custom error pages
Posted by - NA - on 24 June 2009 08:53 AM

To create a custom error page for your account, please login to cPanel and click Error Pages, under Advanced. Select the domain or subdomain you want and click the page you want to edit. The changes will be applied after you click Save.

If you are still seeing the HostGator error pages, try refreshing your browser (ctrl + F5). If you still see the HostGator pages, we suggest in lieu of using the cPanel icon, create your own error pages with names other than 403.shtml, 404.shtml, 500.shtml. Then code the .htaccess file on your account.

How to create custom error pages using .htaccess

A .htaccess file controls the directory in which it sits and all sub-directories under it. However, by placing additional .htaccess files in the sub-directories, other .htaccess files can be overruled.

There are many error pages which may be defined.
