    This is NOT a good solution. Yes you will get the page displayed BUT the response code will be changed to a 200. This is completely the wrong way to handle server response codes and will hurt your SEO efforts.

    I’ve contacted Arvixe support on how to get proper custom 404 pages to work with proper 404 status codes intact and have yet to hear a response back. I’m very disappointed that getting this to work is not straightforward and has required me to contact support for something that should be simple.

    • Hello Kyle,

      I’m sorry for the inconveniences. In step 4, you need to have your custom error page uploaded in your site, where you will redirect users, instead of showing the other error page. Who did you talk in support? Any ticked id?
