If a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have nothing in common with the design of your site, which could be aggravating for any site visitor. That is the reason why hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your unique content, which can be informative or amusing, based on your taste, and that will match the overall layout of your site, so the pages shall not appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting from us, you shall be able to set custom made error pages for your websites easily and quickly, since this function is a part of all our solutions. After you have created the files and uploaded them to your hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up that will show up, you'll see drop-down menus for all 4 types of errors and for each of them you can choose an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page. If you select the 3rd option, you should only type the URL to the file which you have uploaded and save the change. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add a couple of lines of program code in it. In case you don't have preceding experience or if you're simply uncertain how to do this, you may just copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.
