When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your website, which may be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors will see your customized content, which could be informative or amusing, depending on your choice, and that will match the style and design of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they aren't part of your site 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 Website Hosting

You shall be able to set up custom made error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all website hosting solutions which we offer, so as soon as you log in to the Hepsia CP and visit the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you can select the kind of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned option, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you must upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The exact syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
