When a page on your website does not load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which could be annoying for any site visitor. This is the reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, based on your taste, and which shall match the style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your site at all. You can 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

The personalized error pages function is offered with each and every hosting plan that we offer and you shall be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for every single Internet site hosted in the account independently, so that each set of custom made pages will have the same design as the Internet site it's part of. When necessary, you could always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about the subject.
