If a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which may be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your unique content, which can be informative or humorous, based on your taste, and that will match the overall design of your website, so the pages won't look like they are not part of your website at all. You may 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 Hosting

When you obtain a Linux cloud hosting from us, you will be able to set custom made error pages for your websites easily and quickly, as this function is a part of all our packages. As soon as you have created the files and uploaded them to your hosting account, you can go to 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 that will show up, you will see drop-down options menus for all 4 types of errors and for each of them you can pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page. In case you pick the 3rd option, you should just type the URL to the file which you have uploaded then save the change. One other way to set personalized error pages is to set up an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of program code in it. In case you don't have previous experience or if you are simply not sure how to do this, you can just copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.
