Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability will have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which could be frustrating for any website visitor. This is the main reason why hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, based on your preference, and which will match the design and style of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
You can set up custom error pages for all of your sites without difficulty if you use any of our Linux cloud hosting. This can easily be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to choose from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.
