If a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have practically nothing in common with the design of your site, which could be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your taste, and that will match the layout of your website, so the pages will not look like they're not 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
You will be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your sites without difficulty if you use any of our website hosting. This can be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This feature could be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to pick from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Personalized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.
