If a page on your site does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing that resembles the design of your site, which may be irritating for any website visitor. This is the main reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or humorous, based on your choice, and that will match the layout of your website, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

You can set up customized error pages for each of your websites easily when you use any of our Linux website hosting. This could be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.
