Each time a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your website, which may be frustrating for any visitor. That is the primary reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and which will match the overall design of your website, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your website 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 Hosting

The customized error pages function is available with every shared hosting package deal that we offer and you'll be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to develop 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 easily do this for each and every web site hosted in the account separately, so that each set of custom pages will have the same design as the site it is part of. When necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the required program code from our Help article on this subject.
