Whenever a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which could be aggravating for any website visitor. This is the main reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which can be informative or witty, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the overall design of your website, so the pages won't appear as if they are not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
The customized error pages function is offered with each and every shared hosting plan which we offer and you will be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for every Internet site hosted in the account independently, so that every group of personalized pages shall have the exact same design and style as the site it is part of. If necessary, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the required code from our Help article about this.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the semi-dedicated hosting that we provide support custom error pages and it will not take more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll need to input the links to the custom-made files using very simple drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Needless to say, you have to upload them inside your account before that. If you do not need to employ this feature at some point, you will be able to deactivate it just as quickly and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable if your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the personalized error pages. The file should have a specific line of code and a link for each and every error type and you can discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
