When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Because 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 almost certainly will have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any visitor. That is the reason why website hosting providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors shall see your custom content, which may be informative or humorous, depending on your personal preference, and which shall match the layout of your website, so the pages will not seem like they are not part of your website at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

The customized error pages feature is available with every cloud website hosting package that we offer and you will be able to replace all the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each website hosted in the account individually, so that each set of custom pages will have identical layout as the site it is part of. If needed, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to a 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 include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the semi-dedicated services which we provide support tailor-made error pages and it shall not take more than a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will have to type in the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Keep in mind, you must upload them inside your account before that. If you do not want to employ this feature at some point, you can deactivate it just as quickly and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file needs to have a specific line of code as well as a link for each and every error type and you may discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
