When a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing in common with the design of your website, which can be frustrating for any website visitor. This is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't look like they aren't part of your website at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom error pages for any of your sites easily if you use any of our Linux shared hosting. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you can copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.
