Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have nothing in common with the design of your website, which may be aggravating for any visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or funny, depending on your preference, and that will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages won't look like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You may 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 Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your Internet sites with ease if you use any of our shared hosting. This could be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated at any time and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.
