Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your website, which may be annoying for any site visitor. This is the reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors shall see your unique content, which can be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they're not part of your site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

The custom error pages function is offered with each and every web hosting package we offer and you shall be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for every single Internet site hosted in the account independently, so that every group of custom made pages shall have the very same design as the website it is part of. If needed, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom 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 not done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you could set custom error pages for any of them easily via our custom Hepsia hosting CP. With several mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to edit the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for any of the 4 error types. All you have to do is provide a link to every file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you will be able to revert this modification anytime and in exactly the same way. If you wish, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder associated with the website whose error pages you intend to modify and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
