Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which can be annoying for any site visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or witty, in accordance with your personal preference, and which shall match the overall layout of your website, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your site at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

This could be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Personalized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.

In case you do not want to use this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom made error pages. The file needs to include a particular line of code and a link for each error type and you can find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
