If a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have practically nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the reason why hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they're not part of your Internet site 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 Website Hosting

The custom made error pages function is available with each website hosting plan we offer and you will be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for every single website hosted inside the account independently, so that each group of personalized pages shall have the exact same layout as the website it's part of. When 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 customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you could set tailor-made error pages for each of them with ease via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to edit the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for any of the four error types. All you need to do is supply a link to every file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you'll be able to revert this change at any time and in exactly the same way. If you'd like, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It must be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder linked to the website whose error pages you would like to alter and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
