When a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your site, which may be aggravating for any site visitor. That is the reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't appear as if they are not part of your website at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all shared website hosting package that we offer, so once you log in to the Hepsia CP and check out the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you could choose 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 latter alternative, you have to assign the URL to the page, so when you use customized pages, you need to upload the files inside your hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file located 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 feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
