Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly shall have nothing in common with the design of your website, which can be aggravating for any website visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors will see your customized content, which could be informative or humorous, in accordance with your personal preference, and which shall match the layout of your Internet site, so the pages will not seem like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
The customized error pages feature is provided with each and every shared hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for every website hosted inside the account independently, so that every set of personalized pages will have identical design and style as the Internet site it's part of. If needed, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you may simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on this subject.
