When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have nothing that resembles the design of your website, which can be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which may be informative or humorous, based on your taste, and that will match the design and style of your website, so the pages will not seem like they're not 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 each of your Internet sites with ease if you use any of our cloud website hosting. This can easily be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes 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 beforehand and enter the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated plans which we supply support custom made error pages and it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you will need to input the links to the custom-made files using basic drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Needless to say, you need to upload them inside your account before that. In case you do not need to employ this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as quickly and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom error pages. The file should contain a specific line of code and a link for each error type and you may find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
