When a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which may be annoying for any visitor. This is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your customized content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your taste, and that will match the overall design of your website, so the pages will not look like they're not part of your website at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The customized error pages feature is offered with every cloud web hosting package deal that we offer and you shall be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for each web site hosted in the account independently, so that each group of personalized pages shall have the same style and design as the website it is part of. When necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add 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 this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your pages for any of the four error types to any site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and won't take more than a few mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files inside your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can select what page should appear for each and every error type. Your choices are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. If you choose the abovementioned option, you must input the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will be displayed in case a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file so as to set custom error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator instrument, and should you choose this option, the file should be placed in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
