Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your website, which can be irritating for any website visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or humorous, based on your preference, and that will match the design and style of your website, so the pages will not appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You could use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

You'll be able to set up custom error pages for each of your Internet sites effortlessly when you use any of our hosting. This could be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them through the process. This feature can be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
