If 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 which will show up, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which can be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors shall see your custom content, which could be informative or funny, depending on your personal preference, and which shall match the style and design of your site, so the pages will not seem like they are not part of your Internet site 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 custom error pages for each of your Internet sites without difficulty if you use any of our shared hosting plans
. This can be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and once you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to choose from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.
