If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have practically nothing that resembles the design of your website, which could be irritating for any visitor. That is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or humorous, depending on your choice, and which shall match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages won't seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

The personalized error pages function is provided with each web hosting package we offer and you'll be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for every single Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that every set of customized pages shall have the exact same layout as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you can always return 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 inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Incorporating your own pages for any of the four error types to any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really basic and will not take more than several mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files to your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could choose what page should display for every single error type. The options are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. In case you select the last option, you have to type in the link to every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which will appear when a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. If you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to be able to set custom error pages too, as an alternative to using our integrated generator instrument, and if you choose this option, the file must be positioned in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
