404 Error Page Setup

A 404 page is an error page that displays when someone tries to access a page on your website that doesn't exist.

Our hosting accounts allow you to use your home page as your 404 page, or you can create a custom one.

NOTE:  To use a customized 404 error page, you must first upload a custom page to your hosting account, and then enter the full URL to your 404 Page Designation settings.

Our 404 redirects use IIS.  Certain programming languages such as ColdFusion and ASP.NET have their own methods of handling 404 errors, rather than allowing IIS to handle the redirect.

To Set Up Your Custom 404 Page

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. From the My Products section on the left, click Hosting.
  3. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Launch.
  4. In the Settings section of the Hosting Control Center, click the 404 Error Behavior icon.
  5. To edit the 404 error page preference for your hosting account, select one of the error-page options:
         Use Home Page
         Use Custom Page (enter absolute link)
         Use Palace Wizard's Default 404 Error Page
  6. Click Continue.
  7. Review and verify your 404 error page preferences. If everything looks OK, click Submit.

    NOTE:  Links in the 404 page must be absolute, e.g. http://www.yoursite.com/page.html or else they will break when clicked from the 404 page.
