Each time a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your taste, and which will match the style and design of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for any of your Internet sites easily when you use any of our Linux hosting. This can easily be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts as soon as you go there, you'll be able to set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.
