Whenever a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which could be irritating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or amusing, depending on your taste, and that will match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages will not look like they are not part of your website at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

You can set up custom error pages for each of your Internet sites with ease when you use any of our website hosting services. This could be done using the Hosted Domains part 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 need to upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to choose from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
