Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which can be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why hosting providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or witty, depending on your taste, and that will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages will not look like they're not part of your website at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You can set up custom error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting solutions that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you could choose the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the latter alternative, you will need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use customized pages, you should upload the files in your hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide support personalized error pages and it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files through simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Keep in mind, you have to upload them to your account before that. In case you do not want to employ this function at some point, you will be able to disable it just as quickly and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to enable the personalized error pages. The file should have a particular line of code and a link for every error type and you may find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
