When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly shall have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your site, which could be irritating for any site visitor. That is the reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which can be informative or humorous, depending on your personal preference, and which shall match the overall design of your site, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your Internet 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 Shared Website Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for each of your Internet sites with ease when you use any of our shared website hosting services. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Customized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you can copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and will not take more than several mouse clicks. Once you upload the files in your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may select what page should show up for every single error type. Your options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. Should you select the abovementioned option, you have to enter the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page that will be displayed in case a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you're more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to set in-house developed error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator software tool, and should you choose this option, the file should be placed inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
