Whenever a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have nothing that resembles the layout of your website, which could be annoying for any visitor. That is the reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your unique content, which may be informative or amusing, in accordance with your preference, and which shall match the design of your website, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The customized error pages feature is provided with each cloud hosting package which we offer and you'll be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each and every Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that every set of custom pages will have the exact same layout as the Internet site it is part of. If needed, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your own pages for each of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really easy and shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks. Once you upload the files in your account, you could navigate to 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 pick what page should display for every single error type. The choices are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. In case you select the last option, you must input the link to every single page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that will be displayed if a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. If you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to set custom made error pages too, instead of using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you pick this option, the file needs to be placed in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
