When a page on your site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which may be annoying for any visitor. That is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, based on your preference, and that will match the overall design of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

You can set up custom error pages for any of your sites easily when you use any of our web hosting. This can easily be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.

If needed, you shall be able to revert this change whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you want, you may use an .htaccess file too. It should be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder belonging to the internet site whose error pages you would want to change and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
