Each time a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing in common with the layout of your site, which can be irritating for any website visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or funny, in accordance with your taste, and which shall match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages will not seem like they're not part of your site at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The custom error pages function is offered with every single cloud hosting package that we offer and you will be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You will have to create 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 CP. You can easily do this for each and every website hosted in the account separately, so that every set of custom made pages shall have the same layout as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we offer support custom made error pages and it will not take more than a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you will have to type in the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Needless to say, you must upload them to your account before that. If you do not need to employ this function at some point, you can deactivate it just as fast and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to activate the personalized error pages. The file needs to have a particular line of code plus a link for every error type and you may discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
