Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which can be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and which shall match the style and design of your website, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The customized error pages function is offered with every cloud web hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for each and every site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of custom made pages will have the exact same design as the Internet site it is part of. When necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set personalized 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 can simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers support customized error pages, so you'll be able to employ this function for every single domain or subdomain hosted inside your account. All it will take to do that is to go to the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, to click on the Edit button associated with the particular domain/subdomain and then to type the link to the custom-made file. You'll be able to do this individually for each error type. You'll be able to switch back to a default error page anytime if required and the change shall take effect at once. A different way to get the very same result is to put an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder of the web site which you would like to change and to type in a few lines of program code within it. If you want to try this method, you can copy and paste the required code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, thus you shall not need any computer programming skills or previous experience.
