Each time a page on your website does not load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or humorous, depending on your taste, and which will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not seem like they're not part of your site at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The customized error pages function is offered with each shared hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for every web site hosted inside the account individually, so that every set of custom pages will have the same design as the Internet site 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. One other way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside 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 needed code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the Linux semi-dedicated plans which we supply support personalized error pages and it shall not take more than several clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will have to enter the links to the custom-made files through very simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Of course, you need to upload them in your account before that. If you do not want to employ this function at some point, you can easily disable it just as fast and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the personalized error pages. The file should have a particular line of code plus a link for every single error type and you can easily discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
