Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which may be aggravating for any website visitor. This is the reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your unique content, which can be informative or witty, based on your preference, and which will match the style and design of your site, so the pages won't look like they're not part of your website at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is offered with each shared hosting plan which we offer and you will be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for every site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of custom made pages shall have identical design as the website it is part of. When necessary, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.
