If a page on your site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which can be annoying for any 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, visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or amusing, depending on your personal preference, and which shall match the overall layout of your website, so the pages won't look like they are not part of your website at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to set up personalized error pages for all of your sites effortlessly if you use any of our shared website hosting. This can be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This function can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you shall be able to to select from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Personalized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
