Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which could be irritating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which can be informative or witty, depending on your personal preference, and which will match the design and style of your site, so the pages shall not appear as if they are not part of your site 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 function is available with each cloud web hosting package deal that we offer and you will be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for each and every web site hosted in the account independently, so that each group of custom made pages will have the exact same design as the site it's part of. When necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you may simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your own pages for any of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very uncomplicated and will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files inside your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may select what page should appear for every single error type. Your options are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. Should you select the abovementioned option, you need to input the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which will be shown when a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. In case you’re more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to set customized error pages too, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you pick this option, the file needs to be positioned inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
