When a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your site, which may be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or humorous, depending on your taste, and which shall match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages shall not look like they aren't 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 Cloud Hosting
You can set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud hosting package that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will show up, you may choose the sort of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a custom one. For the last mentioned alternative, you'll have to specify the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you need to upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The exact syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.

Needless to say, you should upload them to your account before that. If you don't want to employ this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to enable the customized error pages. The file has to contain a specific line of code plus a link for each error type and you can discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
