When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which may be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or witty, in accordance with your taste, and which shall match the overall layout of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they are not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The customized error pages function is available with every cloud hosting plan which we offer and you will be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for each and every Internet site hosted inside the account independently, so that each group of customized pages will have identical design and style as the Internet site it's part of. When necessary, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom 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 never done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated servers that we supply support personalized error pages and it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks in 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 will need to input the links to the custom-made files via very simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Keep in mind, you need to upload them in your account before that. In case you don't want to use this function at some point, you could deactivate it just as quickly and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable if your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom made error pages. The file needs to include a particular line of code as well as a link for every single error type and you can easily find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
