When a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have practically nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any visitor. That is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or amusing, based on your choice, and that will match the layout of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to set up personalized error pages for all of your websites with ease when you use any of our Linux cloud hosting plans. This could be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

It must be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder belonging to the site whose error pages you would want to change and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
