If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have practically nothing that resembles the design of your site, which may be annoying for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which may be informative or humorous, depending on your taste, and which shall match the overall layout of your website, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your site 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 Cloud Hosting
You can set up custom made error pages for any of your websites effortlessly if you use any of our Linux cloud packages
. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them through the process. This feature may be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
