When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing that is similar to the design of your website, which can be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your unique content, which may be informative or amusing, in accordance with your taste, and which will match the style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they are not part of your site at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

The custom made error pages function is available with every cloud website hosting package deal that we offer and you'll be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for each and every website hosted inside the account independently, so that each set of custom made pages will have the very same style and design as the site it's part of. If required, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different 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 haven't done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply support custom made error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will need to enter the links to the custom-made files through very simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Needless to say, you should upload them to your account before that. In case you do not want to use this function at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as fast and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to permit the personalized error pages. The file has to contain a specific line of code plus a link for every single error type and you may discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
