Whenever a page on your site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing in common with the layout of your website, which could be irritating for any visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or humorous, depending on your choice, and which will match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they aren't part of your website 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

You will be able to set up customized error pages for any of your websites with ease when you use any of our cloud website hosting plans. This could be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Adding your own pages for any of the four error types to any website hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very simple and won't take more than a few mouse clicks. Once you upload the files inside your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could select what page should show up for each and every error type. The alternatives are a standard Apache web 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 each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which appears when a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you're more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file in order to set in-house developed error pages too, as an alternative to using our integrated generator instrument, and if you select this option, the file needs to be located inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
