When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any website visitor. This is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which could be informative or humorous, based on your preference, and which shall match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages won't look like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting plans which we offer, so after you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you can pick the kind of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the aforementioned option, you have to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you should upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located inside 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 function even if you do not have any previous experience.
