When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your site, which may be frustrating for any visitor. This is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your personal preference, 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 may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
The personalized error pages function is offered with every single shared hosting plan which we offer and you will be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for each and every web site hosted inside the account independently, so that each set of customized pages will have the very same design as the site it is part of. When necessary, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about this.
