Each time a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your website, which could be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, based on your personal preference, and that will match the overall design of your Internet site, so the pages will not 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

You will be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your websites easily if you use any of our Linux hosting packages. This can be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts as soon as you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them through the process. This function may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put 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 can copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.
