You'll need a server, either with python or nodejs

@notGilbert I use UptimeRobot for hosting.. is there a way i can use that?

@Xenity no,

which type of server software are you using? (like nodejs express, python flask, etc..)

if you're using node with express you can add this after all the handlers:

app.use(_, res => {
  res.status(400);
  res.sendFile('./path/to/404.page');
});

if you're using a HTML/CSS/JS repl, you'll need to a node/flask repl

@notGilbert hmm, i don't have a server of my own.. and i don't have the budget to make one..

@Xenity you can host it on replit

by a server, I mean something that handles requests and routes them accordingly (like the Nodejs or Flask repl)
