Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your site, which can be frustrating for any visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which could be informative or amusing, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the design of your site, so the pages shall not appear as if they are not part of your website at all. You could 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 customized error pages feature is provided with each shared hosting package deal that we offer and you will be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall have to create 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 Control Panel. You could do this for every website hosted in the account independently, so that every group of customized pages will have identical style and design as the website it's part of. If necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.
