When a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which can be irritating for any website visitor. That is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which could be informative or funny, based on your preference, and which will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

The customized error pages function is provided with each cloud website hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to produce 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 could do this for every Internet site hosted inside the account separately, so that each set of customized pages will have the same style and design as the Internet site it is part of. When necessary, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.
