Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have nothing that resembles the design of your site, which could be frustrating for any site visitor. This is the reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your customized content, which could be informative or witty, depending on your preference, and that will match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they're not part of your website 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 Shared Hosting

The custom made error pages function is provided with each and every shared hosting package deal which we offer and you shall be able to replace all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each and every Internet site hosted in the account independently, so that each group of personalized pages shall have the same layout as the website it's part of. When necessary, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a 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 add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you could simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your pages for each of the 4 error types to any web site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very easy and will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks. Once you upload the files in your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can select what page should show up for every error type. Your choices are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. In case you choose the aforementioned option, you have to input the link to each and every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which will be shown if a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. In case you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file so as to set in-house made error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator tool, and in case you select this option, the file needs to be positioned inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
