When 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 which will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or witty, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the overall design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The customized error pages function is provided with each cloud hosting plan which we offer and you'll be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for each and every site hosted in the account individually, so that each set of customized pages shall have the same design as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply support customized error pages and it will not take more than a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will need to input the links to the custom-made files through very simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Needless to say, you need to upload them inside your account before that. If you don't want to employ this function at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as quickly and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file needs to contain a specific line of code plus a link for each and every error type and you can easily discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
