If a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which may be irritating for any visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or amusing, based on your personal preference, and that will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each and every Internet site hosted in the account independently, so that every set of customized pages will have the exact same layout as the website it's part of. If necessary, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on this subject.
