If a page on your site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your site, which can be irritating for any website visitor. This is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which can be informative or witty, based on your preference, and which shall match the overall layout of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they are not 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 Hosting
The customized error pages function is available with every hosting plan which we offer and you will be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for every site hosted inside the account individually, so that each group of customized pages will have the same style and design as the site it's part of. If required, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about this.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we offer support personalized error pages and it shall not take more than a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll have to input the links to the custom-made files using basic drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Of course, you need to upload them to your account before that. In case you don't need to employ this function at some point, you can easily disable it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the customized error pages. The file needs to contain a particular line of code and a link for every error type and you can easily discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
