Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which may be annoying for any visitor. This is the main reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your preference, and that will match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if 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 Cloud Hosting

The custom error pages feature is provided with every single cloud hosting package which we offer and you will be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for every single website hosted inside the account independently, so that each set of custom pages shall have the exact same design and style as the site it's part of. If necessary, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article on the subject.
