Whenever a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which can be frustrating for any visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which can be informative or humorous, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the overall layout of your site, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your website at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for all of your Internet sites without difficulty if you use any of our Linux shared web hosting packages. This can easily be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.

If you don't want to use this feature at some point, you can easily disable it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error.
