Whenever a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which can be aggravating for any website visitor. This is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or amusing, depending on your taste, and which shall match the design and style of your site, so the pages will not appear as if they are not part of your site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

The customized error pages function is offered with each cloud website hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll need 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 every website hosted inside the account individually, so that each group of custom pages will have identical layout as the site it's part of. When necessary, 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 have never done this before, you may simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply support custom made error pages and it will not take more than a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you will need to enter the links to the custom-made files using simple drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Of course, you have to upload them inside your account before that. If you don't need to use this feature at some point, you can disable it just as easily and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom error pages. The file needs to contain a specific line of code plus a link for every single error type and you can discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
