Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which could be irritating for any website visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which may be informative or humorous, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages won't look like they're not part of your site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

You can set up custom error pages for all of your Internet sites effortlessly if you use any of our hosting plans. This could be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them through the process. This feature can be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content required for the file from our Help section.
