When a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which could be irritating for any site visitor. This is the reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or amusing, depending on your personal preference, and which will match the style and design of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they aren't part of your site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting solutions which we offer, so when you log in to the Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you may select the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter alternative, you need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you have to upload the files in your website 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 precise syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
