When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors shall see your customized content, which can be informative or funny, in accordance with your preference, and which will match the design and style of your website, so the pages will not look like they are not part of your website at all. You could 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 custom made error pages function is offered with every single shared hosting package that we offer and you will be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every single site hosted in the account independently, so that each group of custom made pages will have the same design and style as the site it's part of. If required, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on this subject.
