When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which can be informative or witty, in accordance with your taste, and which will match the style and design of your Internet site, so the pages will not seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

After you have created the files and uploaded them to your hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. In the pop-up that will appear, you'll see drop-down menus for all four types of errors and for each one of them you may select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page.

Another way to set custom error pages is to set up an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of code in it.
