When a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which could be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages shall not appear as if 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 Web Hosting
The customized error pages function is available with every web hosting package that we offer and you will be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each and every Internet site hosted in the account separately, so that each group of personalized pages will have identical design and style as the Internet site it's part of. If needed, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you can simply copy the required program code from our Help article on the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All semi-dedicated hosting that we provide support custom made error pages and it will not take more than a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll need to type in the links to the custom-made files through basic drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Of course, you need to upload them inside your account before that. In case you do not want to use this function at some point, you will be able to disable it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you could also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom made error pages. The file needs to include a particular line of code and a link for every single error type and you can easily find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
