If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have nothing that resembles the layout of your website, which can be frustrating for any website visitor. This is the main reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which can be informative or amusing, depending on your personal preference, and which will match the design and style of your website, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

The custom made error pages function is available with each website hosting package deal that we offer and you will be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that each set of customized pages shall have the same style and design as the site it is part of. If required, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on the subject.
