If a page on your website does not 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 is standard for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have nothing that resembles the design of your website, which may be annoying for any site visitor. This is the main reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the design of your website, so the pages shall not look like they are not part of your Internet 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 Web Hosting
The personalized error pages function is provided with every cloud web hosting plan we offer and you will be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for every web site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of custom made pages shall have identical design as the site it's part of. If needed, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on this subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you may set personalized error pages for any of them with ease via our in-house created Hepsia hosting CP. With just a couple of clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you can change the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for any of the four error types. All you need to do is provide a link to every single file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you shall be able to revert this change whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you'd like, you could use an .htaccess file too. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder linked to the internet site whose error pages you would like to modify and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
