If a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing in common with the design of your website, which may be aggravating for any visitor. That is the primary reason why hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or amusing, based on your preference, and that will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages shall not appear as if they are not part of your site at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The custom made error pages function is offered with each cloud web hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, 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 website hosted in the account individually, so that every set of customized pages shall have the same layout as the website it is part of. If required, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set personalized 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 could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your web sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can set personalized error pages for any of them effortlessly through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you could modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for each of the four error types. All you need to do is provide a link to every file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this modification anytime and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder linked to the internet site whose error pages you would want to alter and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
