Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which could be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or humorous, in accordance with your preference, and which shall match the overall design of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they're not part of your site at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting
You can set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud web hosting package that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you can choose the kind of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to assign the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you must upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans which we provide support custom made error pages and it shall not take more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you'll need to enter the links to the custom-made files via very simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Of course, you must upload them in your account before that. In case you do not want to employ this feature at some point, you can deactivate it just as quickly and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to allow the personalized error pages. The file needs to include a specific line of code plus a link for each error type and you can discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
