Whenever a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any visitor. That is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or humorous, depending on your taste, and that will match the design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

The customized error pages feature is offered with each hosting package which we offer and you will be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for every web site hosted inside the account individually, so that every group of custom made pages will have identical design and style as the site it's part of. If needed, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support tailor-made error pages, so you'll be able to employ this function for each domain or subdomain hosted inside your account. All it takes to do this is to navigate to the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, to click the Edit button linked to the given domain/subdomain and to enter the link to the custom-made file. You'll be able to do this separately for every error type. You shall be able to switch back to a standard error page at any time if needed and the change shall take effect at once. A different way to get the very same result is to set an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder of the website that you'd like to edit and to enter a few lines of program code inside it. If you'd like to try this method, you can copy and paste the needed code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, so you'll not need any coding skills or prior experience.
