If a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which may be aggravating for any website visitor. This is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or funny, based on your preference, and which will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages shall not look like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

The customized error pages feature is offered with each hosting package which we offer and you will be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You'll need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for every single web site hosted in the account separately, so that each group of customized pages shall have identical design as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply support customized error pages and it will not take more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you will need to type in the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Keep in mind, you should upload them to your account before that. In case you don't need to employ this feature at some point, you could deactivate it just as fast and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom error pages. The file should include a particular line of code as well as a link for each error type and you may find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
