When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your website, which could be annoying for any website visitor. This is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and that will match the layout of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your website 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 Cloud Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud hosting solutions which we offer, so when you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you can select the sort of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a customized one. For the aforementioned option, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you must upload the files in your hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The exact syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated plans that we supply support personalized error pages and it shall not take more than a couple of clicks from 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 have to enter the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Of course, you need to upload them to your account before that. In case you don't need to use this function at some point, you could deactivate it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown whenever 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 contain a specific line of code as well as a link for every error type and you can easily find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
