Each time a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which can be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your choice, and that will match the style and design of your site, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The custom made error pages feature is offered with every single shared hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each website hosted inside the account independently, so that each set of custom made pages shall have the very same design and style as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you could always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your pages for any of the 4 error types to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very simple and shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files in your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could choose what page should appear for each and every error type. The choices are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. In case you choose the last option, you have to input the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that shows up if a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you're more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set tailor-made error pages as well, rather than using our integrated generator instrument, and should you select this option, the file should be located in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
