If a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your website, which can be annoying for any site visitor. That is the reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors shall see your custom content, which may be informative or witty, based on your choice, and which will match the style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like 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 Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to set up personalized error pages for each of your sites without difficulty if you use any of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. This could be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to select from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated packages which we provide support custom error pages and it will not take more than several clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you will have to input the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Needless to say, you need to upload them in your account before that. In case you do not need to employ this function at some point, you can easily disable it just as quickly and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable if your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom error pages. The file needs to have a particular line of code and a link for each error type and you may find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
