When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which could be irritating for any site visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which can be informative or humorous, based on your taste, and which shall match the overall style and design of your website, so the pages shall not appear as if they're not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for any of your Internet sites with ease when you use any of our cloud plans. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your custom 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 could be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to choose from are a standard 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 put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply support personalized error pages and it will not take more than several clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you'll have to input the links to the custom-made files through basic drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Of course, you must upload them to your account before that. In case you do not need to use 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 shown whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom made error pages. The file needs to have a particular line of code as well as a link for every error type and you can easily find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
