Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your website, which can be annoying for any website visitor. That is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or funny, in accordance with your taste, and which will match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they're 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 Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting solutions that we offer, so once you log in to your Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will appear, you could select the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a customized one. For the aforementioned option, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you have to upload the files inside your website hosting account first. An alternative 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, so that you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
