Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing that resembles the layout of your website, which can be frustrating for any visitor. That is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or witty, based on your taste, and which shall match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages shall not appear as if they are not part of your Internet site 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 Cloud Hosting
You can set up personalized error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting plans which we provide, so as soon as you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll be displayed, you can select the kind of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache server page or a personalized one. For the last mentioned option, you'll have to assign the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you need to upload the files in your hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
