Each time a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which may be aggravating for any visitor. That is the main reason why hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the overall design of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your website at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to set up customized error pages for each of your websites without difficulty when you use any of our cloud website hosting plans. This can be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them through the process. This feature can be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we provide support custom made error pages and it shall not take more than a few clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you'll have to input the links to the custom-made files using very simple drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Needless to say, you need to upload them in your account before that. In case you don't want to use this feature at some point, you can deactivate it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file has to include a particular line of code and a link for each error type and you can discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
