How to redirect 404 Error page cPanel?

To redirect the 404 error page in cPanel, you can use the “Error Pages” feature. Here are the steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel:
    • Open your web browser and go to the cPanel login page. Enter your cPanel username and password to log in.
  2. Locate “Error Pages” Option:
    • Look for an option named “Error Pages” or “Custom Error Pages.” This option is typically found in the “Advanced” or “Advanced Settings” section.
  3. Select 404 Error Page:
    • In the Error Pages section, find and click on the option specifically for the 404 error page. It might be labeled as “404” or “Not Found.”
  4. Choose a Redirect Option:
    • You will be presented with options to customize the 404 error page. Look for an option like “Redirect” or “URL Redirect.”
  5. Enter the Redirect URL:
    • Enter the URL where you want to redirect users when they encounter a 404 error. This could be the homepage or a specific page on your website.
  6. Save Changes:
    • After entering the redirect URL, save your changes. There should be a “Save” or “Update” button to apply the configuration.
  7. Test the Redirect:
    • To verify that the 404 error page redirect is working as expected, you can intentionally navigate to a non-existent page on your website and confirm that it redirects to the specified URL.

Please note that the steps and options may vary slightly depending on the cPanel version and the theme used by your hosting provider. If you have trouble finding the Error Pages section or encounter any issues, you may want to check with your hosting provider’s support or documentation for specific guidance.

Redirecting the 404 error page helps improve the user experience by guiding visitors to a relevant page instead of displaying a generic error message.
