Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which may be annoying for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or amusing, in accordance with your personal preference, and that will match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages won't appear as if they aren't part of your 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 Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up customized error pages for all of your Internet sites with ease when you use any of our Linux shared web hosting. This could be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to choose from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting which we provide support custom error pages and it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Of course, you must upload them to your account before that. If you do not need to employ this function at some point, you can easily disable it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom error pages. The file needs to include a particular line of code plus a link for each and every error type and you can find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
