Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or humorous, based on your preference, and that will match the overall design of your website, so the pages won't look like 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 Website Hosting

The custom made error pages feature is available with each and every cloud website hosting plan which we offer and you shall be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every single Internet site hosted in the account separately, so that each group of personalized pages will have identical design and style as the website it is part of. When necessary, you may always revert 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 in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the required code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your personal pages for any of the four error types to any web site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really basic and shall not take more than a few mouse clicks. When you upload the files inside your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may pick what page should display for every single error type. Your choices are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. In case you choose the abovementioned option, you need to input the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will be displayed if a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. If you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file in order to set personalized error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you pick this option, the file has to be placed inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
