When a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your website, which may be annoying for any website visitor. This is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or amusing, depending on your choice, and that will match the layout of your Internet site, so the pages won't look like they aren't 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 Web Hosting
The custom made error pages feature is provided with every shared web hosting package deal that we offer and you shall be able to replace all the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each and every Internet site hosted inside the account independently, so that every group of customized pages will have identical design and style as the site it's part of. If needed, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another 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 could simply copy the required program code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you will need to input the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Keep in mind, you must upload them in your account before that. If you don't want 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 displayed when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to enable the personalized error pages. The file should include a particular line of code as well as a link for each and every error type and you can find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
