When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which may be annoying for any website visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, based on your personal preference, and which shall match the overall design of your website, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting
The custom error pages function is available with every single cloud web hosting plan which we offer and you'll be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every single web site hosted inside the account independently, so that every set of custom pages will have the very same style and design as the site it is part of. If needed, you could always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about this.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply support custom error pages and it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you will need to type in the links to the custom-made files using simple drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Of course, you should upload them to your account before that. In case you do not want to employ this function at some point, you can deactivate it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom made error pages. The file has to have a specific line of code plus a link for every error type and you can find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
