If a page on your website does not load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which may be annoying for any site visitor. This is the reason why hosting companies have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, based on your taste, and that will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

The function is supported by all shared hosting package that we offer, so when you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will appear, you can choose the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the latter alternative, you have to assign the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you need to upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The exact syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
