Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing in common with the layout of your site, which could be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or humorous, based on your preference, and that will match the style and design of your site, so the pages shall not look like they're not part of your site at all. You may 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 cloud web hosting package which we provide, so after you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will appear, you could choose the kind of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the latter option, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you need to upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The precise syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
