When a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have nothing that is similar to the design of your website, which can be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or funny, in accordance with your preference, and that will match the design of your site, so the pages won't look like they aren't part of your site at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

If you acquire a Linux cloud website hosting package from our company, you will be able to set custom error pages for your Internet sites easily and quickly, since this feature is part of all of our solutions. As soon as you've created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up which will show up, you will see drop-down options menus for all four types of errors and for each of them you may select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a personalized page. If you select the 3rd option, you should just type the URL to the file which you have uploaded and save the change. Another way to set personalized error pages is to set up an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to include a few lines of code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you're simply not sure how to do this, you may simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.
