To create your own custom error page, you'll simply need to build a page using any of our tools and save the page in your main directory with the name e404.html (for "404 not found" errors) or e401.html (for "401 authorization required" errors).

You can meta refresh from this page to a custom PHP error page

The server will not be returning the appropriate 404 header if a document containing a meta refresh is returned first. – danlefree May 23 '12 at 23:42
