If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the site 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 absolutely nothing in common with the design of your website, which can be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the main reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or humorous, based on your taste, and which shall match the style and design of your website, so the pages shall not seem 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 Hosting

The custom made error pages function is provided with each hosting package we offer and you'll be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for each Internet site hosted inside the account separately, so that every set of custom pages shall have the exact same design and style as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in 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 necessary code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to set tailor-made error pages for any of them easily using our in-house made Hepsia hosting CP. With just a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you could change the default setting from a system page to a custom one for each of the 4 error types. All you have to do is supply a link to every single file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you'll be able to revert this customization at any time and in exactly the same way. If you'd like, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It must be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder linked to the site whose error pages you intend to modify and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
