Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which may be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or funny, depending on your taste, and which shall match the overall layout of your website, so the pages shall not seem like 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 Web Hosting

The customized error pages feature is provided with every cloud web hosting plan we offer and you'll be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that each set of customized pages shall have the exact same design as the Internet site it's part of. When necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your pages for any of the 4 error types to any website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really easy and shall not take more than a few clicks. After you upload the files in your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You can choose what page should show up for each error type. Your choices are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. If you pick the last option, you will need to enter the link to every single page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which appears if a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. In case you’re more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to be able to set tailor-made error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator software tool, and should you pick this option, the file should be positioned inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
