Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which could be annoying for any site visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or amusing, in accordance with your choice, and which will match the design and style of your site, so the pages shall not look like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

After you've created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up which will show up, you shall see drop-down menus for all 4 kinds of errors and for each of them you may choose an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a tailor-made page. If you select the third option, you should only enter the URL to the file you have uploaded and save the change. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to add a couple of lines of program code in it. If you do not have preceding experience or if you're simply unsure how to do this, you could just copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that topic.
