Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have practically nothing in common with the design of your site, which could be aggravating for any website visitor. This is the main reason why website hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or amusing, based on your taste, and that will match the style and design of your website, so the pages shall not appear as if they are not part of your website at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is offered with each and every web hosting package which we offer and you shall be able to replace all the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You'll need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for every single site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of custom made pages will have identical style and design as the site it is part of. If necessary, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you may simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about this.
