Whenever a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which can be irritating for any visitor. This is the main reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your taste, and that will match the style and design of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't 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 will be able to set up custom error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting plans that we offer, so after 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 appear, you could choose the sort of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a customized one. For the latter option, you must specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom pages, you must upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The actual syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.

All you must do is supply a link to each file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this modification at any time and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you could use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder related to the internet site whose error pages you would want to modify and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
