Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which could be annoying for any site visitor. That is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which could be informative or witty, based on your preference, and which will match the overall style and design of your website, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your Internet 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 Web Hosting

You will be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all web hosting package that we provide, so once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you could select the type of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the latter alternative, you must assign the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you must upload the files in your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The correct syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
