What is an Error page?

The basic purpose of an error page is to inform your website visitor when an error has occurred when serving up a web page to their browser.

If you are using WordPress (CMS) for your main frame most of the themes already have 404 page included which is really awesome, but what about all the other pages.

Even though it might be  a mistake from your side you can turn this into a positive. No one really thinks of it but you can use this to monetize these pages.

Edit an error page

To customize an error page, perform the following steps:

  1. If this account manages more than one domain, select the domain for which you wish to edit an error page from the Managing: menu.
  2. Click the error status code for which you wish to edit its error page.
    • If you do not see the desired error status code in that list, click the Show All HTTP Error Status Codes tab. Then, click on the desired error status code.
  3. Enter a message in the text box.
    • To display information on the error page about the visitor who accessed your site, click the appropriate buttons for the information that you wish to display.
    • Enter additional HTML code to further customize your error pages.
  4. Click Save.
