If a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. As 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 in all probability will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any visitor. That is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and that will match the layout of your Internet site, so the pages won't appear as if they are not part of your website at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Hosting
You will be able to set up custom made error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all hosting package that we provide, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll be displayed, you may choose the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a custom one. For the last mentioned option, you have to assign the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you have to upload the files inside your web hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The precise syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
