When a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Since 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 almost certainly will have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any site visitor. This is the reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, visitors shall see your customized content, which could be informative or humorous, depending on your choice, and that will match the design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your Internet 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).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The custom error pages feature is provided with each cloud web hosting package that we offer and you shall be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for every single web site hosted in the account independently, so that every set of custom pages shall have identical design as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply support personalized error pages and it will not take more than several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you'll need to input the links to the custom-made files using basic drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Keep in mind, you need to upload them inside your account before that. In case you don't want to employ this function at some point, you will be able to disable it just as easily and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the customized error pages. The file needs to have a specific line of code as well as a link for every single error type and you can discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
