Whenever a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your website, which may be irritating for any site visitor. That is the reason why hosting companies have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which may be informative or funny, based on your choice, and that will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they are not part of your 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 Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up personalized error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting solutions which we offer, so when you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you could pick the sort of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the latter alternative, you'll have to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you need to upload the files inside your web hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each 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.
