If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which may be annoying for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, based on your preference, and that will match the overall design of your website, so the pages won't appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The customized error pages feature is available with each shared hosting package which we offer and you'll be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for each and every web site hosted in the account separately, so that each set of custom made pages will have the same design as the site it is part of. If required, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in 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 program code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we supply support custom made error pages and it will not take more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you will have to input the links to the custom-made files through very simple drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Keep in mind, you should upload them inside your account before that. If you don't need to employ this function at some point, you can easily disable it just as quickly 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 like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the customized error pages. The file needs to contain a particular line of code as well as 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.
