If a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which can be irritating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the overall design of your website, so the pages will not appear as if 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 Shared Hosting

The custom error pages feature is available with every shared hosting package deal that we offer and you will be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall need 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 Control Panel. You can easily do this for each Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that every set of customized pages will have the very same design and style as the Internet site it's part of. When necessary, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your pages for any of the 4 error types to any web site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very basic and shall not take more than several mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files to your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could pick what page should display for each and every error type. Your choices are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. Should you pick the last option, you will need to input the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that shows up in case a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file so as to set in-house developed error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator instrument, and if you pick this option, the file needs to be placed inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
