If a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which can be irritating for any visitor. That is the reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or amusing, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the layout of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they're not part of your 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 Website Hosting

You shall be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared website hosting solutions which we provide, so once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will show up, you could select the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the last mentioned option, you'll have to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you should upload the files in your web hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The exact syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
