Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any visitor. That is the primary reason why hosting companies have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which may be informative or amusing, based on your personal preference, and which will match the layout of your website, so the pages won't look like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

The custom error pages feature is offered with each and every web hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each Internet site hosted inside the account independently, so that every group of custom pages will have the exact same style and design as the site it is part of. If needed, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you may simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about the subject.

Keep in mind, you should upload them in your account before that. In case you don't need to employ this feature at some point, you can deactivate it just as fast and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the personalized error pages. The file needs to contain a particular line of code as well as a link for every error type and you can easily discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
