Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly shall have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or funny, in accordance with your taste, and that will match the design of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
You will be able to set up custom error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all website hosting plans which we offer, so after you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you could select the sort of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a customized one. For the aforementioned option, you must assign the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you must upload the files inside your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The correct syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
