When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any visitor. This is the reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your customized content, which could be informative or humorous, in accordance with your preference, and which shall match the overall design and style of your Internet site, so the pages won't appear as if they aren't 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 Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all shared web hosting solutions which we provide, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will appear, you may pick the type of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the last mentioned alternative, you must assign the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you have to upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The actual syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
