When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly shall have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which can be frustrating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or witty, based on your taste, and that will match the overall design of your website, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
The personalized error pages function is provided with each website hosting package deal that we offer and you shall be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for every Internet site hosted in the account separately, so that each set of customized pages will have the very same layout as the Internet site it is part of. If needed, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you may simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on this subject.
