If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your site, which could be annoying for any site visitor. This is the main reason why hosting providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or humorous, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your site at all. You can 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 Hosting

You can set up personalized error pages for all of your Internet sites easily if you use any of our cloud hosting. This can be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them during the process. This function can be de-activated at any time and the options you shall be able to to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.
