When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly shall have practically nothing that resembles the design of your website, which can be aggravating for any website visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors will see your unique content, which can be informative or humorous, depending on your taste, and which shall match the style and design of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

The feature is supported by all shared website hosting solutions that we provide, so as soon as you log in to your Hepsia CP and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you could choose 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 aforementioned alternative, you have to assign the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you must upload the files inside your hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
