Each time a page on your website does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your website, which could be frustrating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or funny, based on your choice, and which will match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages will not seem like they aren't part of your site at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
The custom error pages feature is provided with each web hosting plan that we offer and you shall be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for every single site hosted in the account separately, so that each group of custom made pages shall have the very same design and style as the Internet site it's part of. When necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on this subject.
