When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your site, which can be annoying for any visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or witty, in accordance with your preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they aren't part of your site at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The customized error pages feature is provided with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each and every Internet site hosted in the account separately, so that each group of customized pages will have the exact same style and design as the website it's part of. If necessary, you can always go 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 add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you may simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Incorporating your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any website hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and won't take more than a couple of 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 select what page should display for every single error type. Your choices are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. In case you select the abovementioned option, you must input the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which appears in case a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. If you're more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set customized error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator instrument, and if you choose this option, the file has to be positioned in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
