If a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your website, which may be annoying for any site visitor. This is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which can be informative or amusing, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall design of your Internet site, so the pages won't appear as if they're not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a number 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 custom error pages for any of your websites with ease if you use any of our Linux shared web hosting services. This could be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into 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 whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to set custom error pages for each of them easily via our custom Hepsia hosting CP.

If required, you shall be able to revert this customization anytime and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you could use an .htaccess file too.
