Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability will have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your site, which may be aggravating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or witty, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the overall layout of your website, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your website at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

This can be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them through the process. This function may be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Personalized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages.
