When a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your website, which may be annoying for any site visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or amusing, depending on your preference, and that will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not appear as if they're not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for each of your sites with ease when you use any of our shared hosting plans. This could be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them through the process. This feature may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to choose from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made 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 can copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Incorporating your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very basic and won't take more than several clicks. Once you upload the files to your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can pick what page should appear for every error type. Your options are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. In case you choose the aforementioned option, you have to type in the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that will be shown if a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. If you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file so as to set custom error pages too, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and if you select this option, the file needs to be placed inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
