Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. As 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 in all probability shall have nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any site visitor. This is the reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or humorous, depending on your choice, and that will match the style and design of your Internet site, so the pages shall not appear as if they are not part of your Internet site at all. You can 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 and every cloud hosting package deal which we offer and you'll be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for every website hosted in the account individually, so that each group of custom made pages will have identical style and design as the website it's part of. If necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside 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 necessary program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Adding your personal pages for any of the 4 error types to any web site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really easy and will not take more than several mouse clicks. Once you upload the files inside your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could select what page should appear for each error type. Your options are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. In case you choose the last option, you need to enter the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page that appears in case a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. In case you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to be able to set tailor-made error pages too, as an alternative to using our integrated generator instrument, and in case you choose this option, the file must be positioned in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
