If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which can be annoying for any visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, in accordance with your taste, and that will match the overall style and design of your website, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You can set up custom error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud website hosting solutions that we offer, so as soon as you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll be displayed, you can pick the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a custom one. For the last mentioned alternative, you have to assign the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you need to upload the files in your website hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The correct syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
