Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which can be frustrating for any website visitor. This is the reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which may be informative or funny, based on your personal preference, and which will match the overall layout of your website, so the pages will not look like they are not part of your website 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 Website Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for any of your websites with ease when you use any of our website hosting. This can easily be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them through the process. This feature may be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Tailor-made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
