How to Create Custom Error Pages in cPanel

Whenever visitors to your web site experience an error, they see an error page. This article describes how to use cPanel to create custom error pages for your web site.


Visitors to your web site see an error page whenever an error occurs. For example, if users enter an incorrect URL or are not authorized to access specific directories, they see an error page. Companies often customize error pages by branding them with a corporate image and a link to their home page.

Note: Custom error pages are optional. An error page is always displayed, whether a custom error page exists or not. If an error page has not been customized, Apache displays a default error page.

 To create or modify a custom error page, follow these steps:

  1. In the Advanced section of the cPanel home screen, click Error Pages.
  2. Click the error page that you want to customize.
  3. Type the HTML that you want to use in the error page. You can use the buttons at the top of the page to insert variables into your code for dynamic content.

For example, the following HTML code demonstrates how to use a variable in a custom error page:

<h1>404 Not Found</h1>

<p>The requested page, <!--#echo var="REQUEST_URI" -->, is not available.</p>Click Save.

      4. Click Save.
