When a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing in common with the design of your site, which could be aggravating for any site visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, in accordance with your preference, and which shall match the layout of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your site 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 Shared Website Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is provided with each and every shared website hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for each and every web site hosted in the account separately, so that every set of personalized pages will have the very same layout as the website it's part of. If necessary, you may 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 have not done this before, you may simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer support custom error pages and it shall not take more than several clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you will need to enter the links to the custom-made files via very simple drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Of course, you need to upload them inside your account before that. If you don't want to employ this function at some point, you could deactivate it just as quickly and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom error pages. The file needs to contain a particular line of code as well as a link for each and every error type and you may discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
