Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your website, which can be annoying for any visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or funny, based on your personal preference, and which shall match the layout of your Internet site, so the pages shall not appear as if they aren't part of your 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 Shared Web Hosting

The custom error pages function is provided with every single shared web hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to replace all the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each and every web site hosted inside the account independently, so that every group of customized pages shall have the exact same design as the Internet site it's part of. If needed, 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 add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the required code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your personal pages for each of the four error types to any web site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very easy and shall not take more than several mouse clicks. After you upload the files to your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You can choose what page should show up for each error type. The choices are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. In case you choose the aforementioned option, you need to input the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which appears if a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. In case you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to set custom made error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you select this option, the file has to be placed in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
