When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which can be irritating for any visitor. This is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which can be informative or amusing, based on your preference, and that will match the overall layout of your site, so the pages will not seem like they're not part of your website at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for all of your websites effortlessly when you use any of our Linux shared hosting packages. This can easily be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
