Adding Custom Error Pages

When it comes time to add custom error pages within your cPanel web hosting account, the process is fairly easy. Simply follow the step-by-step web hosting guide that we have outlined below:

  • Login to your cPanel web hosting account
  • Locate the section that is called "Logs"
  • Click on the icon that says "Error Pages"

After you have these cPanel web hosting pages created, you'll either have to create an htaccess file within your cPanel web hosting /public_html/ directory with the following lines or add the following lines into your existing htaccess file.

For custom 404 error page:
ErrorDocument 404 /~cpanel_username/404.shtml

For custom 500 error page:
ErrorDocument 500 /~cpanel_username/500.shtml

By doing the aforementioned steps, this will provide customers with customized cPanel web hosting error pages, instead of the bland default ones.
