Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your website, which could be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors shall see your unique content, which may be informative or amusing, in accordance with your taste, and that will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your website at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your Internet sites effortlessly if you use any of our Linux cloud hosting packages. This can be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them through the process. This function could be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your personal pages for each of the four error types to any web site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very easy and shall not take more than several mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files to your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could pick what page should show up for every single error type. Your options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. Should you select the last option, you need to input the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which appears if a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you're more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file in order to set in-house made error pages as well, rather than using our integrated generator software tool, and in case you pick this option, the file should be placed inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
