Each time a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your website, which may be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, based on your choice, and which will match the layout of your website, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your site 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 Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to set up personalized error pages for all of your websites with ease if you use any of our cloud website hosting plans. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them through the process. This function could be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to select from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we supply support personalized error pages and it will not take more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you will need to type in the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Keep in mind, you should upload them inside your account before that. If you don't want to employ this feature at some point, you can disable it just as fast and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom made error pages. The file should include a particular line of code and 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.
