Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your site, which may be frustrating for any visitor. That is the reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or humorous, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall design and style of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they are not part of your site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

The custom made error pages function is offered with each and every shared website hosting package deal we offer and you will be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks from 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 using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for every website hosted in the account individually, so that every set of personalized pages shall have the very same layout as the website it is part of. When necessary, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add 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 the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your personal pages for each of the four error types to any website hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very simple and won't take more than a few clicks. When you upload the files to your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You can pick what page should show up for every error type. The choices are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. If you select the abovementioned option, you will need to type the link to every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which will be shown when a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. In case you’re more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to set in-house made error pages as well, as an alternative to using our integrated generator software tool, and in case you select this option, the file must be placed inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
